Agriculture Laboratory - Where Agriculture and Science meet!
The NEWAGE Agriculture Laboratory is committed to testing and consulting with those in the agriculture industry. That is why NAL is a trusted source of usable agricultural data. We pride ourselves on quick turnaround times, analytical accuracy, and client satisfaction.
NEWAGE Laboratories provides agricultural lab tests on everything from seed to harvest for customers seeking to increase their production. From backyard gardeners to family farms to commercial farmers, NAL tests plant sap, soil, and tissue for grains, berries, hemp, soybeans, and other crops, as well as water, livestock wastes, poultry, produce, dairy, and vineyards.
Our Commitment To The Midwest
As a founding member of the Southwest Michigan Agriculture Alliance, we are committed to bettering the agriculture industry of the Midwest and beyond. We provide analytical and consulting services to all areas of the agricultural community. NAL uses modern, well-maintained, and daily calibrated equipment to perform valid analytical procedures.
Whether you utilize NAL’s fixed lab in South Haven, MI, or one of our mobile units, customization comes in the form of uniquely tailored methods and procedures. Our highly trained chemists and technicians use the most appropriate tools and techniques to provide you with real-time results in a variety of laboratory configurations.
Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)
We focus our testing on providing our agriculture clients with usable data focused on Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). These practices are at the heart of NAL’s agriculture lab testing services.
Focusing on GAP, we evaluate the circumstances and yield of a given crop. By measuring soil conditions, water nutrients, plant tissue, and other factors we can determine if an agricultural product is being grown under optimal conditions. This is where NEWAGE Laboratories’ usable data shines; we don’t just tell a farmer about his soil, we explain how he can improve the soil and future crops.
Quality and Sustainability
We also understand that different agricultural products have their own set of investment and sustainability to be considered. For example, apples and blueberries require a longer investment than corn. The short- or long-term investment required of a specific crop affects the health of the soil and is a key aspect of Sustainable Agriculture.
The goal of Sustainable Agriculture is to maximize production at a sustainable level without negatively impacting a field long-term. NAL’s scientists are adept at determining a field’s ability to optimize input in order to maximize output.
