Institute for Fertilisers and Seeds

The Institute for Fertilisers and Seeds of LUFA Nord-West offers a very wide analysis spectrum for fertilisers, seeds and soil analysis for heavy metals.

Biological, chemical and physical analyses are also part of our testing procedures. We offer verified analysis through the application of nationally and internationally recognised and accredited analysis procedures.
