Organized in 1999. The Laboratory employs highly qualified specialists doing the analytical activities as follows: humus content estimation, acidity, group and fraction composition of humus, the amount of translocating phosphorus, exchange potassium, and hydrolyzed nitrogen, nitrogen fixing capability, structural-aggregate, micro-aggregate and granulometric composition, water and physical characteristics.

Activities including agro-chemical investigation of the soils of beetroot cultivation territories of Vinnytsia, Khmelnytsk and Lviv regions are carried out. Scientific consultation services on determining quantitative criteria of physical and chemical properties used for yield valuation of soils and further land plots valuation are provided. The methodology for agricultural production losses estimation by means of yield valuation of lands for which the amount of penalty sanctions in case of the land degradation in the process of pipelines construction, oil and gas drilling and extraction works is also calculated The Laboratory has a Qualification Certificate No РЛ 1102/07 of December 17, 2007 given by Lviv Regional Centre of Standartization, Metrology and Certification.
