Maximize The Efficiency of Your Inputs

One of the best ways to maximize the efficiency of your inputs, such as herbicides and fertilizer, is by balancing your pH.  Over time, nitrogen fertilizers have a tendency to lower your field’s pH level, which directly impacts the effectiveness of your inputs and crop yields.  The costs of seed, fertilizer, and seed are too high to apply them to soil with limited potential.  Ag lime has consistently proven itself to be the best, and most cost effective, way to rectify soil pH issues.

Soil Sampling FAQ

What is a soil test?

A Soil Test is a process by which nutrients are chemically removed from the soil and measured for their plant available content within the sample.  The quantity of available nutrients in the sample determines the amount of fertilizers needed for a particular crop.  A soil test also measures pH and the amount of acidity within the soil to determine if lime is needed and how much should be applied.

How often should a soil be tested?

A soil test should be conducted if fertilizer is going to be applied or when problems occur during the growing season. Once every year is recommended when nitrogen fertilizer is applied, and at least once every three years if P and K are concerned.

When is the best time to take soil samples?

Soil samples can be taken any time throughout the year for checking pH, phosphorus and potassium status.  Collect soil samples 1-2 months before planting. Early spring is a good time to take soil samples for summer crops, and summer is a good time to sample for fall and winter crops.  This allows time for lime recommended to react with the soil and change the pH before the crop is planted. To assess soil available nitrogen, sample as close to planting as possible
