Soil Sampling

Take the guesswork out of fertilizing with the district's first one's free soil sampling program for commercial crops, hay fields, and pastures . 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.
