Soil Sampling

Take the guesswork out of fertilizing with the district's first one's free soil sampling program. Fertilization recommendations based on soil test results will ensure that you do not over apply or under apply nutrients to your pasture, hayfield, or commercial crop.

If you are a homeowner wishing to test your own 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.
