Take the guesswork out of fertilizing with the district's soil sampling program. New in 2019, we are offering five free soil tests to commercial crop, hay field, and pasture owners. Or farm owners can choose to obtain a manure test for two of those tests. Fertilization recommendations based on soil test results will ensure that you do not over apply or under apply nutrients.
If you are a homeowner wishing to test your lawn or garden soil, refer to Taking Routine Soil Samples on our Resources page. You can mail in your sample to a lab and have an analysis run and the lab will often provide nutrient recommendations for an additional fee.
To schedule a soil sample for your hay field, pasture, or commercial crop, contact one of our Farm Planners, listed at right.
