tnx a ton for ur reply.

I had already contacted labs mentioned in this website. Few of them dont have chemical tester or not having enough lab assistance. Therefore i have doubt whether i will receive correct report or not.

hi sandesh, we faced similar problem in south gujarat. offcially the chemical is not issued by the government so they cant give you a report. but they used to conduct soil tests for sugar mills and others using procured through them. so we got a report done, only the official government paper was not there. see if similar things can work for you.

Manual soil kits are not reliable to do oneself.  I got the kits which are not working as expected.  It is better to consult nearby Agriculture university for soil tests as they do them regularly and give the soil test report.  I got soil tests done at Agriculture university, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. 

Very True … These kits give only rough bands … not actual numbers…

Hi,

Can you please post the cost of the kit? I had inquired with them sometime ago. The smallest kit they had was for 50 tests. The concern I had was about the shelf life of the chemicals.
