Soil toxicity is a concern for all of us on old land.
To ensure the safety of our produce for ourselves and our customers we hired Wallace Labs to perform an Agronomic Soil Suitability test of our soil for: pH, salinity, types and concentrations of soluble salts in saturation extract, SAR, all essential nutrients, percent moisture, half saturation and 14 non-essential potentially toxic trace minerals.
The test found that our concentration of plant available lead is “moderate”. This means, excessive uptake of lead into produce is not expected. All other trace non-essential minerals were found to be “very low”.
These results were provided to the city, as a part of our license application.
