Soil Renovator Program

VSS's soil testing program has been the corner stone service. After years of development, our comprehensive soil testing packages allow for accurate diagnosis of soil and plant nutritional requirements. The analysis is carried out through the accredited services of the Environmental Analysis Laboratory of Southern Cross University. Fertility reports advise on standard inputs and numerus organic and biological products. The renovator program is a unique service due to its focus on building long term fertility levels, going beyond the standard short-term fertiliser programs.
