Soil tests are used to determine a wide range of nutritional deficiencies by providing detailed information on the nutrient status and recommendations for improvement. Soil testing can be used to establish new, diagnose existing, and maintain successful lawns, gardens and crop stands.
Our most common soil test, the routine soil test, test for the basic soil nutrients and minerals such as:
pH (soil acidity)
In addition to the routine soil test, there are several other test available, better suited for commercial applications. Consult with an agent before requesting any additional soil test to determine which would best benefit you. Allow seven (7) to ten (10) business days for completed test results, and if you have any questions about the results and how to interpret the recommendations, feel free to meet with an agent.
