"The IoT has improved my practical skills.
"We use the Palintest Soil Testing kit to analyse potassium levels in the soil. The Palintest field kit allows us to test the levels of macronutrients and micronutrients within the soil whilst out on the field. It's great as it gives immediate results like those you’d get in a lab.
"Understanding the nutrient levels within the soil is important as intensive farming can impact soil health and the wider environment. Testing means we can make sure the soil is as healthy as possible and not over-farmed."
