Calling all Floridian landscape contractors!
Are you looking for a simple yet insightful way to test your soil? SoilKit is just right for you! Your soil test results will come complete with a list of the items the soil needs, how much to use, and recommendations of choice products. With the postage label and fee included, satellite imagery with a sq. footage calculator provided, and numerous kit options available, adding new benefits not previously available with extension office offerings. SoilKit comes in three varieties: single kits, twin packs, a PROpacks (1 unit with 12 kits).
SoilKit spoke with Dr. J Bryan Unruh, professor at the University of Florida and state extension turf grass specialist for the IFAS extension office. Dr. Unruh emphasized customer information anonymity as well as the contractor’s ability to control which aspects of the results are shared with their clients. By using the PROpack, landscape contractors can work with agritech to ensure that the recommendations provided are specifically written towards the products of their choice. “If they have a particular distributor that they use, agritech can take those particular products and put them in the ‘pantry.’ The recommendations are then written to those particular products.” Additionally, the reporting structure is unique in that “[contractors] can toggle portions of the results on or off so they can share the results with their clients but the recommendations can remain proprietary.” For all of these reasons and more, it is time to optimize your business with SoilKit!
