The Division Soil / Chemistry is subdivided into three task areas:
•  agricultural soil and plant analysis
•  analysis of residue
•  determination of physical-chemical soil parameters

As a reliable service provider for farmers, horticultural and fruit-growing business,
the agricultural soil and plant analysis is totally practice- oriented.
Our most important service in this field is the nutritional analysis of soil and plant samples.
Generous laboratory capacities and modern automatic analysers are available
for comprehensive sample series. The DAkkS accreditation according to ISO17025
for selected physical-chemical parameters from the "Fachmodul Abfall"
as well as for pre-crop analyses prove our competence.

The residue analysis branches are specialized on the detection of plant protection products
in soil, water and plants. Many projects of the Divisions of Ecotoxicology
and Field Tests are accompanied by chemicals analyses and this happens across all divisions.
The development of analytical methods of determining residues supplement our range of services.
State-of-the-art analytical devices are available for processing purposes.

The characterization of soils (soil parameters) is one of our special services.
 In our laboratories, the physical-chemical properties of soils can be determined
under GLP conditions.
