Are you looking to have your soil tested in your lawn, vegetable or flower garden, non-commercial fruit crops, or for your landscape trees and shrubs? Are you looking for accurate recommendations for fertilizer applications?
Have your soil tested through Extension Kewaunee County by the University of Wisconsin Soil & Forage Analysis Lab in Madison. A standard soil test will identify soil pH, percent organic matter in the soil, and amount of phosphorus and potassium.
Step 1: Select the sample location. Select your sample area and remove any overlaying mulch, sod, or compost from the sample site.
Step 2: Take your soil sample. Collect approximately 1 to 2 cups of soil from different areas from the top 5-7 inches of soil using a clean trowel, shovel or soil probe.
Step 3: Package your soil sample. Place your sample in a heavy-duty plastic bag or soil sample bag. Soil sample bags are available from the Extension Kewaunee Office. Label bag with the sample location description, your name and contact information.
Step 4: Bring your sample to the Extension Kewaunee County Office located on the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds, 625 Third Street, Luxemburg, Wisconsin. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For further questions please contact us at (920) 388-7141.
Cost: Total cost includes the analysis along with an additional $10 shipping fee. There are additional/optional tests offered per sample. Payment method can be cash, check, or credit card.
