The Miami County Extension office has soil testing kits available for $20. Please visit us Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. to purchase one. Please note: we are close for lunch 12:30 - 1:00 p.m.

Testing is available for gardens, home lawns, farm fields, and commercial horticulture operations. Each sample is analyzed for water pH, Mehlich buffer lime requirement, and for phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and calcium by the Mehlich 3 (ICP) test. The final report includes the chemical analysis of the soil along with lime and fertilizer recommendations for the crop specified. For agronomic crops, Mehlich 3 zinc, copper and sulfur are also reported. 

soil testing fact sheet are included.

A copy of the results will also be sent to our office, so if you have any questions Amanda Bennett can answer them.
