Company to analyze soil using biosolids to identify the land most suitable for improvement.

Environmental monitoring specialist enitial has won a new contract with Severn Trent Water to help farms use natural resources, in the form of biosolids, on their land to improve productivity.

The company is sampling and analyzing soil to identify the land most suitable for improvement using biosolids.

The soil samples are taken by experienced technicians using technology which records the exact location of every sample taken. This information can be used to target specific areas for the use of biosolids.

Ivor Parry, business development director at enitial, said: “Using biosolids on agricultural land has huge benefits for farmers as it can significantly increase production and yields.

“Our stringent sampling and analysis techniques determine concentrations of certain elements already contained within the field soils before using biosolids to help farmers use the land as productively and efficiently as possible.”

Biosolids are playing an increasingly important role in land regeneration and agricultural improvement.

Recent improvements in production methods have made them a high quality, cost effective alternative to traditional fertilizers.

Tony Martindale at Severn Trent Water said: “In order to help farmers use biosolids to improve soil quality on the land, we need to identify suitable sites through soil analysis. It’s imperative that all our sampling and analysis comply with the industry agricultural Code of Practice which is why we’ve called in environmental sampling expert enitial.”

The five-year contract involves enitial technicians taking soil samples from farms interested in using biosolids on the land as a fertilizer.

Samples will be sent to the National Laboratory Service (NLS) to be analyzed in accordance with the agricultural Code of Practice.

Results will be used to ascertain whether it is beneficial to use biosolids on the land based on current concentration levels in the soil.
