Home Garden Soil Testing —  UW Soil Lab website

Due to Covid 19, the UW Soil Lab is closed until further notice.  Please visit their website above for submission form and information on when they will re-open.  Thank you.

The Door County Extension office is also closed until the Safer at Home order is lifted.

Garden soils should be tested about every 3 years.  Sampling early in spring or late fall assures you will have recommendations before buying fertilizer.

What is needed:  Approximately 1-2 cups of soil (dry).  Put soil into a zip top plastic bag and bring it to the Extension Office.  A short form is completed to be sent with your sample.  The cost is $15.00/sample, plus $2.00/sample for postage.  Results are usually processed within 10 working days.  If you would like more information, please contact the Door County Extension Office at 920-746-2260.   More specific information can be found at the UW Soil Lab website.
