SOIL FOODWEB INSTITUTESoil Rehab Specialists Since 1986
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.

The Soil Foodweb Institute have been soil rehabilitation specialists since 1986.

By utilising our services you will learn how you can manage and maintain a balanced and healthy soil.

A key benefit of using the SFI methodology is the reduction of artificial chemical inputs and an increase in the soil biology. Disease suppression is substantially enhanced and water usage generally declines.

The team at SFI is fully committed to assisting growers achieve true sustainable soil fertility without the need for toxic and costly chemicals, thereby enabling you to improve crop yields and the returns on your investment. You’d be amazed at how cost effective our programs actually are and how beneficial it can be to have a professional on your team to guide you through the processes involved. In effect Soil Foodweb Institute offers a window into plant-soil and foliar relationships.

Achieving the right biology enhances these key functions:

Disease protection – minimizes to eliminate the need for pesticides

Nutrient immobilization – reduces leaching of nutrients from your soil

Nutrient availability – optimal forms in the right place at the right time

Decomposition of toxins – removes harmful residues

Root health, root depth, water retention, aerobic conditions in soil and improved soil structure – less watering needed, lessen your dependence on fertilizers

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!
