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:

    • Call the Extension office 920-746-2260 and a “kit” will be mailed to you.
    • Follow the directions to properly sample your soil.  A total of 1-2 cups of soil is required for testing.
    • Cost per sample depends on which test(s) you want the lab to perform, plus $5.00 postage.  LAWN AND GARDEN SOIL SAMPLING INSTRUCTIONS     Lawn-Garden Soil Submission Form
