Soil science studies program Faculty of Agriculture University of gastric Mangkurat is the institution which operates learning on the field of study disciplines related to soil as a medium for planting and soil as part of the environment.  Based on the soil properties (physical, chemical and biological soil) is a basic knowledge of the main emphasis is focused in the study in this institution.  Thus the course and infrastructure belonging to the laboratory of soil is also directed to support activities that operates on things associated with soil properties. With the support of analysis tools (glassware, measuring tools and chemicals) and energy analysts who owned Land Laboratory is currently capable and competent to perform the analysis of soil samples, the network of plants and fertilizers.  Analysis of the parameters that are capable and competent is handled by the laboratory of soil science are as follows:

  1. Analysis Of Soil Samples
    1. Physical Properties Of Soil

    3. Biological Properties Of The Soil
      No. Parameters
      1 Isolation and characteristics of soil microbes (bacteria, fungi and aktinomisetes)
      2 The total population of bacteria, functions and aktinomisetes
      3 Morphology of colonies of microbes
      4 Isolation and characteristics of bacteria, rhizobium atmospheric N fastening system
      5 Isolation and characteristics of microbial solvent P
      6 Isolation and characteristics of microbial selulolitik
  2. Analysis of the tissue samples of the plant tissue Analysis of plants that are capable and competent Laboratory carried out by Land only on the analysis of the content of a particular nutrient, i.e., N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Al and Fe network (root, stem, leaves and fruit). The methods used in the analysis of plant tissues are wet by using multiple dekstruksi Extractor, namely (a) H2SO4 + mixed amateur fucked, (b) H2O2 + H2SO4 and (c) H2SO4 + HNO3.  The measurement of quantity parameter analysis contained in the plant tissues using some way i.e. titration, spectrophotometer and flamefotometer.
  3. The analysis of the sample of Fertiliser (organic and inorganic) fertiliser Analisia (organic and inorganic) capable and competent conducted in the laboratory of Soil related only on the analysis of the content of a specific nutrient in the fertiliser (organic and inorganic), N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Al and Fe. The methods used in the analysis of plant tissues are wet by using multiple dekstruksi Extractor, namely (a) H2SO4 + mixed amateur fucked, (b) H2O2 + H2SO4 and (c) H2SO4 + HNO3.  The measurement of quantity parameter analysis contained in the plant tissues using some way i.e. titration, spectrophotometer and flamefotometer.
