Do I Need a Soil Test?
Soil fertility is important for good plant growth. Testing is the only way to know nutrient levels.
A test gives you accurate information about the type and amount of fertilizer or amendment to apply. Applying proper amounts decreases runoff that can pollute waterways. This protects the environment and saves you money.
A soil test measures pH and available nutrients.Johnson County homeowners are eligible to receive one free test (Package #1) per household per calendar year.
Proper collection of a soil sample is important for accuracy and analysis. Follow these steps for taking good samples.
