Performing a Soil Test
Select ten areas in the plot and work up the soil. Collect a sample from each of the areas and mix them together. Measure out a 2-cup sample and place in a sealed bag. We recommend Midwest Labs. The type of soil test to be performed is the S2N, the garden soil sample format. This test will check for all elements as well as pH.
Fill out the form
and send it in with your soil test sample. This form is capable of being used for more than one sample submission at a time. Should you choose to perform a soil test on more than one sample, be sure to clearly mark each sample and list each on the form. The results will be sent to you either by email or US Postal Service.
