Soil Testing Information
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our county MSU Extension office has reduced its in-person office hours.
Community members interested in purchasing a soil sample kit can order one online. Community members interested in dropping off soil samples for testing can mail their samples in a resealable zipper storage bag directly to the lab. Mail the sample, along with a completed informational sheet and payment, to:
