|Soil Foodweb is an international soil biology group providing laboratory soil testing and soil biology consultancy services. It was founded by Dr Elaine Ingham, a leading international soil microbiologist. The systems developed by Dr Ingham have been designed to analyse the microbiology present in soil samples and to develop appropriate responses to achieve desired levels and balances of soil microbiology.|
Soil Foodweb Institute have been soil rehabilitation specialists since 1986 and by utilising their services you will learn how you can manage and maintain a balanced and healthy soil.

Achieving the right biology enhances these key functions:
Disease protection - minimizes to eliminate the need for pesticides
If you don’t know what organisms are present in your soil and on your plants’ leaves, then much of your management is being left to chance!
