Contour Environmental and Agricultural Consulting offer independent and tailored soil testing and interpretation.

Most production limitations can be traced back to soil limitations.

Our advice is based on your system, and local conditions.

We strive to maximise your soils productive capacity by focusing on the long-term health of the soil, it’s nutrients and its microbiology.

Accurate soil tests allow landholders to maximise the health of their soils and make sound decisions about fertiliser management to ensure crops and pastures are as productive as possible.

Identifying potential soil limitations enables landholders to develop an action plan (such as an appropriate fertiliser program) to reduce the potential of ‘problem’ paddocks.

There are four main steps in soil sampling:

  • collecting representative samples.
  • laboratory analysis.
  • interpretation of test results on which to make decisions.
  • recording the results and actions taken for future reference.

Grazing and Horticultural Agronomy

good science and good practice

The principle of regenerative agriculture and regenerative pastoralism is to enhance natural ecosystem services, resulting in sustainable production, an improved natural resource base, healthy nutrient cycling, increased biodiversity and resilience to change.

The role of good science and good practice.

Regenerative farming practices aim to improve landscape function, increase biodiversity and improve nutrient recycling.

A healthy soil equals good crop yields.

Together with our partners, we have developed a method to determine a soil’s health by considering it as a whole;

  • biological conditions
  • physical conditions
  • chemical conditions
