Back Paddock has been providing independent soil testing and interpretation service for over ten years.

One of the most noticeable in recent years has been the increasing % of tests conducted in central, southern NSW, Vic, and SA with pH low enough to consider liming to prevent yield loss and advancing acidity to deeper in the soil. survey of samples conducted through our services indicates up to 40 % of samples take for winter crops and autumn sown pasture across this region from 2015 to 2017 had pH (CaCl2) less than 5.5 and 20 % less than 4.5. As the questions “How to choose lime’ and what rate should I look at usually follow?”
