Nutrient Biological Test
By now you’ve probably heard of, maybe even paid for, a mail-in DNA test.
Weeks after dropping a saliva sample in the mail, a detailed description of your genetic
makeup arrives. Some of these tests also offer detailed health histories, outlining biological predispositions that can prompt intervention and prevention that’s literally saving human lives.
The science and thinking behind Branch Creek’s Soil Health Test isn’t too far removed from this now-popular model. By providing landscape contractors with the soil’s “DNA” –
its biological profile – we arm them with the ability to quantify the impact that chemical
inputs and cultural practices have on the biology in their soil.
This first of its kind test is the result of years of careful research.
The Branch Creek Nutrient Biological Test lets us get, “under the hood” of our turf and begin to understand how our fertility programs and cultural practices affect soil biology and outcomes. This groundbreaking test provides counts of the microbial strains that are responsible for cycling nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
