Getting Started

We provide solutions, as in chemistry, but also as in agronomic assessments, products and procedures to provide optimum vegetation vitality through the treatment of water and remediation of soil, sustainably.

 

In essence, we fix a water to be a better product, better than rain, that can also be charged to fix soil conditions. The reactions to water and soil fix infiltration, available nutrition, and biology to create optimum crop vitality and resistance to many forms of attack, chemically and biologically.

 

What we need to see;

 

1. Soil Analysis – preferably titrated at multiple depths and by both, distilled water, and also by ammonium acetate.

 

2. Water Analyses - the untreated water being used on these soils. If a blend or seasonal, we need to know the percentages and or the varying waters.

 

3. Total Bacteria - the biology, the total bacteria levels of the untreated source water.

Details: 

Sample must be taken accurately and designated as such, including but not limited to:

 

   Soil Analyses:

  1. Client Identification

  2. Sample Location

  3. Purpose of Test

  4. Description of soil conditions

  5. Depth

    • Be sure to take representative samples. Do not mix a unique area of soil with a separate soil condition.

    • Place all soil samples into a paper bag

  6. Desired Recommendation / Outcome

  7. Contact Name, company, phone and email.

  8. Constituents to be tested (underline is minimum), ideally in ppm where applicable

   Water Analyses:

  1. Client Identification

  2. Sample Location

  3. Purpose of Test

  4. Description of conditions

  5. Sample Depth

    • Be sure to take representative samples 12 inches below the surface of a pond in a flowing section. If pulling from a well, be sure to flush the well adequately so that you can get a sample of the actual ground water. Avoid taking samples of water from stagnant areas. Always use a clean drinking water or Nalgene bottle. DO NOT USE A Gatorade bottle. 

    • Try to keep water samples cool

  6. Source Water Association

  7. Desired Recommendation / Outcome

  8. 32 fl. ounces desired quantity

  9. Contact Name, company, phone and email.

  10. Constituents to be tested (underline is minimum), ideally in ppm where applicable

   Total Bacteria Analyses:

 

            Not E. coli, not coliforms, Total Bacteria CFU/ml exponent.

            Minimum amount of water 8 fl. ounces.

            HCT will do in-house – Turnaround 2 days incubation.

 

Data Submissions:

 

Both water and soil “DATA” can be emailed to info@hctllc.com. Receipt will be personally acknowledged.

 

Bacteria Testing by HCT - Sampling for total bacteria is done by HCT at fee. Water samples should be sent to 7032 East Cortez Drive – Scottsdale, AZ 85254-5123. Be sure to include labeling.
