Home – Owner Soil Test Kit
Thank you for your interest in soil testing! The residential soil testing program for home lawns and gardens is expected to resume by early spring 2023.
Commercial Soil Testing
Thank you for your interest in soil testing. The soil testing procedure for residential, agricultural, wildlife and commercial soil analysis through MSU is undergoing upgrades and changes. We are anticipating the new procedures to be in place this spring. Until then, MSU Extension encourages landowners to utilize commercial soil testing labs until our streamlined soil sample submittal and testing procedures are finalized.
