Hutchinsons News


Welcome to the Healthy Soils stand.

As an irreplaceable physical resource, it is essential to protect and nurture the soil if we are to continue producing crops under the current agricultural model. To help this process the Healthy Soils service provides essential information to growers and agronomists to actively manage soil resources and optimise crop performance: -

  • Measure and monitor soil health
  • Maximise crop nutrition
  • Reduce environmental impact
It is the only report to give both total and available nutritional and rotational nutrient-cycling, providing a programmed approach to soil improvement.

All our Healthy Soils in-field assessors are fully qualified agronomists, fully supporting each other with their shared agronomic expertise and knowledge. With 23 agronomists trained to deliver our Healthy Soils assessment programme spread across the country we have a broad knowledge base to tailor our advice based on specific regional conditions. To further support our in-field assessors we work closely with major agronomy companies to share insights and develop our methods and technologies to always deliver the most cutting-edge soil service possible.
