A soil analysis report and recommendations are based on about a pint of soil submitted for testing. That pint of soil compares to about two million pounds of soil (at six inches deep) per acre. Therefore, for the most accurate report, take the best soil samples possible. These tips will help.
You’ll need to take different samples for various land uses such as agricultural fields, lawn, garden, fruit trees, ornamental shrubs and azaleas because these may have distinct fertility and acidity or alkalinity requirements.
