about us

scientific solutions for a sustainable planet

Atom Earth provide a unique consulting service utilising Portable XRF instruments to provide accurate, cost effective and timely analysis solutions.

Understanding the composition of your soil and health of your growing environment can provide great benefits;

  • * Identifying nutrient deficiencies and imbalances
  • * Maximising growth and yields under particular conditions
  • * Saving money by only buying inputs that will provide benefits
  • * Reducing fertiliser leaching into groundwater and waterways
  • * Identifying harmful toxins that can be taken up by your plants

Whilst there are basic soil test kits available at retail outlets and online they provide limited information and rarely offer meaningful solutions. Traditional lab testing on the other hand can be expensive, time consuming and to the unintiated poses the question..."WHAT TESTS DO I ASK FOR?" Lab results can be also be confusing and lead to more questions than solutions.

Atom Earth offer a different approach. With the latest in non-destructive, environmentally friendly testing technology, our qualified technicians can provide a comprehensive analysis and site specific management plans to optimise healthy, sustainable growth. Whether at a commercial scale or an everyday gardener, our services are accessible and affordable.

Introducing Portable X-Ray Flouresence (pXRF)

Traditionally, portable XRF has been associated with the mining/geological industries, but pXRF has now proven itself to be an oustanding method of analysis for a much broader range of applications from soils and tissue analysis in agriculture to toxic concentrations of heavy metals in pigments and dyes.

The pXRF capability to quantify or qualify elements from Magnesium to Uranium with minimal, non-destructive sample preparation makes it a very versitile tool for the needs of an increasingly aware consumer society. Atom Earth's trained technicians are available to serivce all areas and industries and even offer cost effective residential services.

Whether you're an Environmental Services Company looking to identify an issue on site, a commercial grower requiring soil analysis, home renovator concerned about toxins in building materials or an avid gardener wanting to understand more about the nutrient condition of your soil...we have the answers. read more...

The importance of Fertile Soil

One the flattest and driest inhabited continent on earth; one which is drought prone, subject to extremely variable waether patterns, and which has the world's oldest and least fertile soils...

we need to be scientific in our approach to soil management. see more...

Understanding SOIL chemistry.

Understanding your soil chemistry and the basics of what your plants need and how they get it, is the most effecient method to improve your growing environment.

Applying the right products, in the right quantities, at the right time, in the right place can not optimise growth but also save you money...and the environment. learn more...
