Soil Testing & Fertiliser Programmes


High quality turf surfaces do not happen by accident – correct nutrition is a vital contributor to this. NZSTI has in depth knowledge of the nutritional needs of a wide range of turf grass species and turf situations.

For example, the fertiliser requirements of a browntop golf green in Central Otago is completely different from a Kikuyu rugby field in Northland.

NZSTI provides a comprehensive range of soil testing and nutrition management services for turf grasses. This includes:

  • Soil fertility testing
  • Turf grass tissue testing
  • Soil and tissue test results interpretation
  • Fully detailed fertiliser programmes specifically designed for each situation
  • Nutrient Management Plans to meet statutory obligations
  • Related educational programmes (soil test interpretation and developing fertiliser programmes)
  • Soil test and fertiliser programme record keeping

Most importantly, NZSTI will ensure that you implement the most cost effective fertiliser programmes to achieve your turf quality and performance.
