VitTellus® Soil Health Test & VitTellus Bio℠

"Healthy Soils, Greater Profit"

A&L Canada Laboratories supports farmers and crop consultants to improve soil health through research, information, soil management recommendations and education.

Traditional soil tests measure the physical and chemical properties of soil, and that is valuable, but soil is a living, dynamic and continually changing ecosystem and requires a more holistic approach with a microbiological component for a more complete soil assessment. By digging deeper into the physical, chemical and biological interactions we can make improved agronomic recommendations for higher yields and greater profit. The biological composition of the soil reflects the presence of disease suppressing and bio-stimulating microorganisms in the rhizosphere.

VitTellus logo

The A&L Research agronomy team developed the VitTellus® Soil Health analysis (launched Fall 2018) which is the 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.

VitTellus Bio logo

VitTellus Bio℠ is a new analysis for the agriculture industry that quantifies soil microbial populations which support improved soil health and greater crop productivity. The VitTellus Bio℠ test complements the VitTellus® Soil Health test.

The VitTellus® Soil Health Test & VitTellus Bio℠ are available to assist clients in this deeper assessment of soil parameters.
