Laboratory of Physicochemical Tests for Soil - Water - Plant Tissues

A well-equipped laboratory capable to perform chemical analyses of soils, waters and plant tissues is established in the Land Reclamation Institute.

The laboratory is accredited after ELOT EN ISO/IEC 17025 prototype on essential soil tests.

  • Soil

    • EC, CaCO3, pH, CEC, Organic matter

    • Soil texture - mechanical analysis

    • water soluble and exchangeable ions, SAR, ESP

    • Nutrients analysis

    • Trace elements - Heavy metals

    • Soil condition evaluation, fertilisation recomendation

  • Water

    • pH, EC, BOD, COD, K, Na, Ca, Mg

    • Cl, SO4, CO3, HCO3

    • P, N-NO3, N-NH4

    • Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, B, Cr, Ni, Pb, Cd

    • ESP, SAR

    • Water quality evaluation

  • Plant tissues

    • N, P, K, Ca, Mg, B

    • Trace elements - Heavy metals

    • Evaluation of the results

Soil physical properties Laboratory

The laboratory is equipped in order to perform measurements and determinations of the physical properties of soils.

  • Field capacity and permanent wilt point

  • Soil-water characteristic curve

  • Soil bulk density

  • In-lab determination of the soil hydraulic conductivity
