New VitTellus Soil Health Test Now Available


A next generation Soil Health Test providing actionable strategies for improved nutrient utilization and higher yields.


Traditional soil tests measure the chemical properties of soil, and that is helpful. But soil is a living, dynamic and continually changing ecosystem requiring a more holistic approach to determining optimal and sustainable management practices. By digging deeper into the physical & biological interactions we can make improved agronomic recommendations for higher yields and great profit. The A & L research agronomy team has developed and launched VitTellussm Soil Health, next generation Soil Health Test and recommendation package to help farmers and crop consultants make more informed decisions on application of nutrients, and managing and improving their soil. The VitTellus Soil Health test is available worldwide and can be accessed through the VitTellus website.

The world-class research team at A & L focused on identifying and understanding the soil microbiological-plant relationship and how it influences crop productivity. Through eight years of intensive trials and research, working closely with growers and industry worldwide, A & L has developed VitTellus processes and analytics. Through this research, key Soil Health parameters have been confirmed and demonstrated to have over 90% correlation to crop yields

“Unravelling the complexity of soil science for agriculture leads to more productive approaches and result in healthier soil, stronger plants and greater returns for the farmer and society. This is a worthwhile, long view endeavor, we strongly encourage farmers to truly get to know their soils for their longstanding success,” said Greg Patterson, C.C.A., Founder and CEO of A & L. “We are proud of all the research and development work coming out A & L Labs and are committed and passionate about sharing our knowledge for the advancement of the industry.
