Bas Boen Laboratory is an independent agricultural diagnostic laboratory which utilizes holistic techniques to meet any agricultural production needs.
Founded in 2011 by the USAID WINNER project, Bas Boen Laboratory is modern diagnostic laboratory focusing primary on soil and water testing. This laboratory has also capacity for detection and characterization of plants-parasitic nematodes. Our customers includes growers, farmers associations, greenhouse growers, agricultural consultants, universities, research institutions, property owners and NGOs. We are under permits and regulation of Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources of Haiti (MARDNR). BBL also participated in The Haiti Pilot Soil Survey Initiative- join project between USAID, Foreign Agricultural Services (FAS), U.S Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Direction Rurale Forestiere et du Sol (DRFS) of Ministry of Agriculture (MARDNR) and Faculty of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (FAMV).
The mission of the BBL is to develop environmentally safe control strategies for soil analysis, water quality testing and plant diagnostics, thereby promoting agricultural sustainability, assuring food safety and providing linkage to integrated soil/crop management systems. The mission also includes an inexpensive means for both agricultural producers to test their soil fertility and receive limestone and fertilizer recommendations.
