Don't guess — Soil test and save time and money

Soil testing is the best guide to the efficient use of fertilizer and soil amendments. Whether you grow acres of row crops or have a vegetable garden in the backyard, a soil test will provide you with an analysis of nutrients and a set of recommendations for improvements. Soil testing can be done through the extension office. The cost for a regular test is $15 per sample box. Additional fees are required for additional tests. Each sample box requires 2 cups of dry soil. Results will be mailed to you in about 10 to 14 business days. See additional MU publications for information on soil testing.

Private pesticide applicator training

If you need to be certified or re-certified, call the extension office to schedule a time to view the video. Individuals are required to have a Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual. Bring your copy for verification or purchase one for $12 at the extension office.
