Innovative, sustainable agriculture enables usability of soil nutrients for ecological and future-oriented cultivation of an agricultural area.

The most important factor in this context, apart from the soil types, is the pH value of the soil, which has an important influence on the fertility and increasing productivity of soils.

The absorption of the existing soil nutrients such as iron, zinc or magnesium, which are essential for plant growth, can only be achieved through optimal soil pH and EC values.

The pH range of 5.5 – 6.5 causes both the absorption of trace elements from the soil and the dissociation of most soil nutrients into positively and negatively charged components.

They form the ionic currents that can responsibly influence the uptake of nutrients in the roots.

Portable measuring devices with special electrodes are particularly recommended for such measurements.
