Soil Testing

Asked October 14, 2016, 1:08 PM EDT

I have a small Hazelnut orchard in Alvadore, OR. I need to amend the soil due to poor production and overall tree health. I assume I need a soil analysis done before I start adding lime or potassium, or whatever...Who can do this testing and advise me? Thank you, Tom Leech

Four farm service groups in the area:

SureCrop - off MillIron in Junction City
Wilco - Harrisburg
Wilco - Springfield
Crop Protection Services - Tangent

Then will do the soil testing, make sure you ask for soil recommendations and they can also advise on nutrient requirements.

Lane County is hiring a new Extension horticulture person and will be on board soon
