SOIL SAMPLING – HOMEOWNERS

One of the first steps to having a successful lawn or garden is having your soil tested. A soil test provides more information about the nutrient status of your soil, pH level, organic matter content and texture. The test report also suggests various soil management practices to improve the fertility of the soil for a given crop. 

Follow these steps to properly submit your soil sample:

  • Request a “soil sample kit” from AgSource Laboratories.   Follow the directions to test and mail your sample to the lab.
  • Properly sample your soil; a total of 1-2 cups of soil is required for testing. More information on soil testing.
  • You may visit us at the Extension Office to drop off your soil.  We are located on the second floor of the Government Center on Nebraska Street.  Our office hours are: Monday-Friday, 8 am-4:30 pm.  Please call before you come in to make sure someone is available to take your sample.
  • Cost per sample depends on which test(s) you want the lab to perform.  Soil sample submission form
  • If you have questions, please call 920-746-2260.
