The soil analyses are the first important step to be taken to start estimating the practicability of the heliciculture project in the name of Chiocciola Metodo Cherasco.
The Institute assists its potential heliciculturists from the earliest stages and immediately works alongside its users in the interest of avoiding a false move or risky investments. For this reason, especially in the case of rent or purchase of a plot of land, we invite you to carry out the analyses in order to proceed with integrity in the creation of your own business path.
Analyses are used to establish the pH and the texture of the soil or the chemical and organic characteristics of the soil, that will determine which seed and plants will be the most suitable for each specific case, and will give us the necessary instructions to “correct” any defects.
The Analyses also check the amount of calcium carbonate present in the soil, a very important element that helps the hardening of the shell of our snails and if it is absent or in low percentage, it will be possible to use specific practices that encourage the closure of the shell.
