Abstract Soil properties of importance are dry bulk density, organic matter content, nutrient content and water
holding capacity.
Rooting media properties of importance are pH, EC, water retention, water uptake rate, porosity, stability,
shrinkage and nitrogen fixation.
Miscommunication between producers and user groups can be avoided by measuring the relevant
properties using methods users are familiar with.
Special attention is needed to interpret total nutrients, extracted nutrients and organic matter content.
