Soil Testing

Soil tests will help you develop and maintain a more productive garden, pasture or field by providing information about the fertility status of your soil.

Information from a soil test will help you select the proper liming and fertilization program to obtain the optimum growth of lawn, garden, ornamental and agronomic plants. With the growing prices of fertilizer and soil amendments, a soil test is a relatively cheap option that could potentially save you a lot of money.
