Soil Testing 

Soil testing save time and money. Whether you grow acres of row crops or have a vegetable patch in the backyard.

Basic testing is $18 for the first test, $10 for every test after. Additional fees are required for additional tests. Each sample box requires at least 2 cups of dry soil.
