It is important that farmers understand their soil system for better yields and land optimization. This includes pedon and landscape scale soil properties such as base saturation (BS), cation exchange capacity (CEC) and pH, which all do influence crop type, cropping patterns and land use management practices.

Pedon Uganda Limited employs portable soil testing kits that offer on-spot, real-time soil analysis, to guide farmers on the most suitable cropping and soil management practices for their gardens.
