The soil health card studies and reviews the health of soil and gives a complete evaluation of the quality of soil right from its functional characteristics, to water and nutrients content and other biological properties. The farmers are also provided with corrective measures which they should adopt to obtain a better yield. All soil samples are to be tested in various soil testing labs across the country. Thereafter the experts will analyse the strength and weaknesses (micro-nutrients deficiency) of the soil and suggest measures to deal with it. The result and suggestion will be displayed in the cards. SHC scheme aims at promoting soil test based and balanced use of fertilisers to enable farmers to realise higher yields at lower cost.
