About Us

Since 1974, Woods End, a leader in Soil Health science, technologies, products & services, has been dedicated to the characterization and understanding of the interaction of human industry with soil environments. Dr. William Brinton, founder of Woods End, introduced Solvita, a soil health test developed to simplify respiration testing making soil respiration more cost effective for commercial soil labs.

Dr. Rebecca Harvey, CEO of Woods End Laboratories since the spring of 2022, says our principal focus is building a practical and natural approach to soil analysis through research and farmer outreach. We are experts in characterizing the utilization of organic wastes in agricultural systems and in mapping the fate and effects of agri-chemicals in soil and compost environments. Recently, Woods End has seen incredible growth and has expanded its offerings and facility to accommodate the growing soil Carbon Testing market. Currently, our services are used by farmers worldwide and our custom research services are used by consultants and agricultural Fortune 500 firms.
