SoilCares and Farmer Centre join forces to bring soil testing to Kenya

News out of Africa

SoilCares is working in partnership with Farmer Centre to bring soil testing to the farmers of Meru and its surrounding area.


Farmer Centre has bought a Lab-in-a-box and is now running it as their own to bring soil testing one step closer to the farmer.

Soil testing for farmers is the key to a successful and prosperous harvest, as well as buying the correct inputs such as fertilisers.

The Farmer Centre Lab-in-a-box was set up in November 2015, they are now receiving over 15 farmers a day wanting to get their soil tested. As the planting season approaches they expect this number to rise. 

If you are a farmer in Meru, Kenya and you want to get your soil tested, please get in touch with Farmer Centre here:
