What does this test for?▾
Each Tap Score Soil Test package includes sampling materials for one (1) soil sample including macro- and micronutrients, as well as heavy metals and other vital soil health characteristics – such as pH, and organic matter.
These characterizations allow us (and you) to figure out what is missing, what is wrong, and ultimately how to improve your soil quality and your plants’ health. We will guide you in your decision-making process about restoring your soil's health based on your lab results.
Indicates your soil’s acidity or alkalinity on a scale of 0 to 14.
Cation Exchange Capacity
Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) is the calculated value that estimates a soil’s ability to attract, retain, and exchange cations (positively charged ions). Many nutrients exist as cations, therefore CEC helps indicate a soil's ability to supply important plant nutrients.
Percent Base Saturation
Percent base saturation is the percentage of the CEC occupied by calcium, magnesium, and potassium cations. Values can indicate issues related to potassium concentration or soil acidity.
Lime Buffering Capacity
Lime buffering capacity (LBC) signifies a soil’s ability to resist a pH change. Expressed as weight of pure lime (CaCO3) needed to raise the pH of one kg of soil by one unit, LBC can be used to calculate the amount of agricultural lime required to reach a target pH.
The amount of plant and animal residue present in your soil is known as Organic Matter (OM). This is reported as percent of total soil.
Nitrate as Nitrogen (NO3-N)
Nitrate is critical to plant growth and production. The nitrate measured is soluble and readily available for your plants to uptake as fertilizer.
