Soil testing platform now available to BFG Supply retailers in 26 states
Foley, Alabama – December 8 – Agricultural data processing and technology software company AgriTech Corp. announced today that landscape and gardening distributor BFG Supply Co. would begin carrying its flagship product SoilKit, an online soil testing platform.
SoilKit, which launched in early 2020, has begun to appear in brick-and-mortar stores across the country, and the product’s distribution across BFG Supply’s selling footprint of 26 states is its latest expansion. Retailers across the Midwest and Eastern US are now able to order and offer SoilKits to consumers in their stores.
“BFG Supply is very excited to offer SoilKit to our customer base and we believe it fills a void in the soil testing category,” said BFG lawn and garden category manager Shawn Parsons. “By offering consumers a professional soil analysis with a list of recommended products that are customized to the products found in their local garden center, SoilKit adds real value by supporting consumers and their local independent retailers. ”
Whereas traditional soil testing involves trips to a county extension office, unexpected shipping fees and interpreting complicated test results, SoilKit gives access to the same lab-based chemical analysis as the largest and most advanced farms in the country with added accessibility: SoilKit’s technology interprets your plot’s unique soil chemistry and recommends amendments to increase growth, health and resilience in whatever you’re growing. As part of its partnership with BFG Supply, SoilKit recommends specific nutrients and fertilizers supplied by BFG locations to ensure customers always find what they’re looking for at their home garden center.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of the BFG family now,” said SoilKit founder Christina Woerner McInnis. “We love what they’re doing for landscapers, gardeners and growers and I’m delighted they believe in providing accessible soil testing for everyone. With BFG’s distribution, we’re able to help even more people grow the lawn and garden of their dreams.”
