Free soil testing in Feb/Mar 2017
By Teresa Bright
The Adair County Soil Conservation District will be sponsoring FREE soil testing during the months of February and March of 2017. All Adair County landowners are eligible to receive eight (8) FREE soil samples. The free samples are eligible only through the UK Adair County Cooperative Extension Service. Soil probes for collecting samples may be borrowed from the Extension Office at 409 Fairgrounds Street in Columbia.
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 allowed to air dry.
If you have any questions about how to take a correct soil sample, contact the Extension Office at 270-384-2317.
