Soil Food Web Analysis


Biology Report for Soil, Compost, Compost Tea, and Extracts.

A Complete Soil Food Web Assessment includes quantification of all the following organism groups: actinobacteria, total bacteria, total fungi, oomycetes (disease-causing fungi), protozoa, and nematodes. This report will identify the beneficial and detrimental microorganisms in your sample, including a brief summary explaining the many roles of the organisms.

If you require more than one sample – for different paddocks, garden beds, or different plant species/crops – please adjust the quantity in the box below. It is important to be aware that sampling from pastures is different from orchards and vegetable gardens etc.

After completing your order, please read the correct soil sampling protocol and the instructions on sending samples to the lab on our Soil Sample Protocol page.



Testing for Bacteria, Fungi, Protozoa, and Nematodes. Determining the total, and currently active amounts of microorganisms in your soil, compost, or compost tea.

We determine the fungi to bacteria ratio of your soil, and for your crop type.

The Soil Biology Test provides you with vital information to fix soil imbalances. It also identifies any detrimental organisms in your soil – Oomycetes, Ciliates and Root-feeding Nematodes.

This detailed report can then serve as the blueprint to create the ideal growing conditions for your plants.

We test:

  • Soil
  • Compost
  • Compost teas
  • Extracts
