Fall soil sampling allows farmers and gardeners time to utilize UK research-based fertility recommendations before spring planting. With the recent rain, actually taking the samples should be easier now, too.
The turn-around time for samples from the Extension Office to the University of Kentucky Soil Testing Lab is much faster in the fall, usually within a week, because fewer people are submitting samples this time of year.
Spring turnaround time can approach three weeks during the busiest times.
