We have an extensive range of tests, using the latest technology and methods, backed by dedicated Client Services Managers.

Hill Laboratories’ makes a difference for customers by helping them increase their productivity, ensure safety, minimise environmental impact, meet regulatory requirements and support their communities’ well-being


We are thrilled to share that Hill Laboratories was announced the winner of the Roy Paterson Trophy for 2018 at the recent Apiculture New Zealand Conference held in Blenheim.

We are often asked about “biological” tests for soil, with growers increasingly wanting to look after their soils as a foundation goal in sustainable farming. A simpler approach taken by Hill Laboratories is to offer a test that can be done on the same sample submitted for pH and nutrient testing.
