OMAF APPROVES TWO ACCREDITED LABORATORIES FOR THE SOIL NITRATE NITROGEN TEST

 

Ontario's Ministry of Agriculture and Food announced today that two laboratories have been accredited to perform soil nitrate nitrogen tests to support environmentally sound and economical use of fertilizer nitrogen in Ontario.

The soil nitrate nitrogen test was introduced in 1991 as a tool for corn farmers to determine residual levels of the substance in their fields. The level of nitrate nitrogen influences crop growth, and the test enables farmers to fine-tune how much nitrogen fertilizer they will need.

The accredited laboratories are located in Guelph and in the Ottawa area. The two are: Accutest Laboratories Ltd., 146 Collonade Road, Unit 8, Nepean, Ontario, N1G 2W1, (613)727-5692; and Land Resource Analytical Services, University of Guelph, Ontario, N1G 2W1, (519) 824-4120.
