APAL delivers high quality independent soil, plant and water analytical services to enable better agronomic decisions.
APAL knows soil. Our ASPAC-accredited and detailed analysis of your soil sample forms the basis for soil fertility programs tailored specifically to your production targets.
By analysing plant health and the level of nutrients a plant is able to uptake through the roots and leaves, APAL's plant testing provides you with a highly cost-effective monitoring tool for maintaining plant health and maximising production.
Good quality water is essential no matter how it's used. APAL's chemical analysis of your water sample is the key to determining suitability for agriculture or domestic uses.
Whether you're a farmer, an agronomist or a researcher, APAL is committed to making your business run smoothly, providing a fast and accurate service for a low cost.
APAL works with farmers to enable full variable rate farming by providing them with invaluable insight into paddock soil, and the technology to ensure consistent testing year after year.
APAL works with agronomists and stores to give growers the confidence they need to hit yield targets and cut back on fertiliser expenses.
APAL works with researchers to provide analysis on soil properties and plant tissues, to improve their specialist knowledge.
"Soil, plant and grain testing play an important part in my clients' decision-making, so it's important to use a laboratory I trust."

"I get raw data for soil tests because I'm comfortable with my soil nutrition knowledge, but when it comes to plant tissue testing, APAL send me a full interpretation, because I'm not as familiar with those results."
"We really appreciate APAL's flexibility and ability to customise services to meet individual farmer needs. With APAL we aren't limited by a fixed set of tests or reports, it is a completely open relationship."
"The results are fast, cost-effective, and I can choose any combination of analyses I need; there’s no regimented set of tests like many of the competitors offer."
With seeding fast approaching, grain growers are encouraged to undertake soil testing before the 2019 growing season to help them make more informed fertiliser decisions and save costs. Below-average rainfall and below-average yields in many parts of southern Australia in 2018 will have resulted in less nutrient [...]
