Free Soil Testing Program
By Nick Roy, Agent for Agriculture & Natural Resources
Adair County Cooperative Extension Service
The Adair County Soil Conservation District will be sponsoring free soil testing for Adair County landowners from February 1st through April 15th. Landowners are eligible to submit up to six (6) samples for free testing through the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service.
When taking soil samples, remember that the results of a soil test are only as good as the sample itself. Samples should be taken at a depth of 3-4 inches for no-till production and 6-8 inches when the ground is to be tilled. Take at least 10 cores samples from smaller fields to compile one sample for the field. Larger fields may require as many as 30 core samples per field. Try to limit soil samples to 20 acres or less when possible. Avoid pulling core samples from drains, near roadways, around feeding areas, and where manure has been applied within the last month. The core samples should be placed into a plastic bucket or paper bag, mixed well, and dried.
For more information contact the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service at (270) 384-2317.
