LRD operates a fully equipped laboratory for physic-chemical analyses in soil, water, plant tissues and other organic or inorganic materials that are used for soil amelioration (compost, sewage sludge, gypsum etc.).

The laboratory is accredited after ELOT EN ISO/IEC 17025

The interpretation of laboratory results leads to:

  • fertilisation consultancy based on the determination of available soil nutrients and the crop type, aided by dedicated specialised software
  • determination of required soil amendments for degraded soils
  • irrigation water quality evaluation
  • assessment of chemical status of soil and water resources for protection, restoration and sustainable management

The parameters measured in the laboratory are:


  • pH
  • Electrical Conductivity and Salinity
  • Organic Matter %
  • Exchangeable and Water Soluble (K+, Na+, Ca2+, Mg2+)
  • POlsen
  • Equivalent and Active CaCO3
  • Total N
  • Available Ν-ΝΟ3and Ν-ΝH4+
  • CEC Cation Exchange Ability
  • Trace Elements (Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, B)
  • Heavy Metals (Cr, Ni, Pb, Cd, As, Hg)
  • Determination of SAR and ESP
  • Αnalysis Evaluation
  • Determination of Nutrient Deficiency with Special Software
  • Determination of Required Addition of Additives in Problem Soils
