YOU SHOULD BE EVALUATING YOUR SOIL.
GET YOUR SCORE.

JUST TESTING YOUR SOIL IS NOT ENOUGH.  YOU NEED TO DO MORE.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TESTING YOUR SOIL!

WE EXPLAIN TO YOU WHAT CONVENTIONAL AG CONSULTANTS ARE TELLING YOU.

They say your soil nutrients are lacking, and in order to increase yield, you need to purchase a combination of nutrients, namely NPK.

WE TELL YOU WHAT THEY DON'T

There is a real dollar value of your nutrients.  The average farm field contains over 1,900 lbs of nitrogen, 600 lbs of phosphorus, and 800 lbs of potassium. These levels equate to over $4,200.00* of total nutrients.

 

*Based on 2023 average NPK pricing.

WE IDENTIFY THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM AND COME UP WITH A PLAN

Our soil health evaluation combines numbers from, not just one test but three.  Using these tests we can look at the water-soluble ca-to-mg ratio which determine the soil compaction levels. Correcting this ratio is the most important in fixing your soil.

TEST YOUR SOIL

Most consultants and universities recommend a “soil test” to make fertilizer input recommendations for your crops. CaluSolv utilizes this standard soil test (mild acid extraction) and two others (strong & water extractions) that universities and most companies don’t utilize or disclose. Our “Soil Health Evaluation.” is designed to show you more than how much “fertilizer” you need to purchase.  

The three tests combined reveal the dollar value of your total NPK nutrients, the expected release of soil nutrients, your soil’s compaction level, and other health indicators. The “total extraction” reveals the insoluble but available nutrient levels described by Dr. William Albrecht.

A Soil Health Evaluation allows you to eliminate the purchase of NPK nutrients you already have in your soil.

THE SOIL WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU
EVALUATED YOUR SOIL?

 

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY SOIL HEALTH EVALUATION?

WE DON’T JUST DO ONE TEST, WE DO THREE.  BELOW, WE HAVE EXPLAINED WHAT THE THREE TESTS ARE AND THE INFORMATION THEY SHARE.

S3C - MILD ACID TEST

The mild acid (S3C) test provides the lbs of nutrients expected to release during the season. From the predicted release, a recommendation for additional nutrients is made to supplement the crop for a positive yield response. (100% plant focused)

Includes: Organic Matter, Available Phosphorus (P1 Weak Bray and P2 Strong Bray), Exchangeable Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and Hydrogen, Soil pH, Buffer Index, Cation Exchange Capacity, Percent Base Saturation of Cation Elements, Nitrate Nitrogen, Soluble Salts, Sodium, and Excess Lime, Sulfur, Zinc, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Boron

PT2 - STRONG ACID TEST

The (PT2) Total Nutrient Test demonstrates that the average farm field contains over 1,900 lbs of nitrogen, 600 lbs of phosphorus, and 800 lbs of potassium. These levels equate to over $4,200.00* of total nutrients. The average farm doesn’t need to purchase NPK; they need to release their insoluble but available nutrients.

*Based on 2023 average NPK pricing.

Total Nitrogen Sulfur, Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Aluminum, Manganese, Copper, Zinc

H20 - WATER SOLUBLE TEST

The water-soluble calcium-magnesium ratio determines the actual soil compaction level. This ratio is the most important in the soil and accurately identifies varying degrees of soil compaction. The first step in resolving soil compaction (poor soil health) involves addressing this ratio.

Includes: water-soluble Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Sulfur

GET STARTED – PULL A SOIL SAMPLE

FOLLOW THESE STEPS BELOW OR DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS HERE

Sample should be taken, using soil from 1-6 inches in depth.
Mail one copy of form with samples and keep one copy for records and fields. 1.5 pints of soil per sample.

WHERE

Samples should be taken from fields that have a similar lay of land or need to be separated (front lawn, back lawn, garden). Field sizes can range between 0 & 30 acres if the topography is the same and cropped the same.

TOOLS

1. Sampling probe or hand spade, trowel or small shovel
2. Clean pail for mixing cores.
3. Sample bags or zipper bags

COLLECT SOIL

Take multiple cores (8 – 15) from each field to obtain a good average of the field. Thoroughly mix cores in a clean sampling pail.

COMPLETE FORM

Name the fields (samples) with names that you commonly use for those areas. Make a copy of the form, keep one copy and mail one copy with the samples. *Bag names should match field names.

DOWNLOAD FORM

MAILING SAMPLES

Label Bag – Fill Bag – Mail

SEND IT OFF

The mailing address for Midwest Labs is on the form. Small or medium size Priority Mail boxes generally work well if you have more than one sample.

CaluSolv’s Soil Health Evaluation combines three tests giving the landowner a better understanding of soil compaction by looking at calcium from 3 different angles.

Testimonials

Best greenhouse crops I’ve ever produced.

Omer G

Indiana

I have no problem saying that the 200 dollars spent on CaluSolv increased our income by over $2,000 dollars.

Andrew H

Kentucky

We have used CaluSolv on our non-GMO alfalfa field for three years, and we see fewer weeds. The grass stand has thickened up naturally, giving us a better-producing field.

John G

Iowa

We have switched our entire farm to CaluSolv. I have never seen plants produce and grow like they do on the product!

Jeff E

Calusolv has worked with me to understand the analysis and made recommendations on soil amendments.

Ronnie H

North Carolina

The armyworms ate my neighbor’s bermudagrass hay on each side of my property. They made it 10 ft into my field and disappeared. The product speaks for itself!

Charles M

Mississippi

We only had to spray the garden twice for bugs and with the straw and newspaper mulch, we only had to water it 2 or 3 times.  God so blessed us!!!!  I’m very sold on your CaluSolv and the plants love CaluSolv!  It’s awesome!!!

After using CaluSolv for 4 years, my soils are balanced and release stored nutrients. This program has actually allowed me to use less fertilizer each season while producing high-quality, great-tasting tomatoes that my customers wait for each year.
