Getting your soil tested is an important part of gardening and farming. Basic soil testing analyzes nutrient content and fertility status. Results include fertilizer and lime recommendations. Additional tests are available for nutrient management plans, environmental issues, potting mixes, compost, manure and water usage. Each sample should contain about 1½ cups of dry soil from 6 to 7 inches deep. Consult our soil testing publications for specific instructions. Bring your soil samples to the Montgomery County Extension Office, 310 Salisbury St., Ste. E., Montgomery City, MO 63361. Results are typically provided within two weeks.
