Commercial Soil Tests

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.

MSU Extension soil fertility recommendations for crop nutrients and lime, can still be obtained through our on-line MSU Fertilizer Recommendation Program, MSUE educators and fertility specialists are available to answer your soil fertility and management questions.

Soil Labs:

gardens is expected to resume by early spring 2023.
