soil testing

Asked February 15, 2017, 3:47 PM EST

Where can soil testing be done? Can I get help in learning how to amend the soil to make it grow-able?

Typically what we have found is most Nevada based labs can perform the complete test, but are unable to provide the information in a gardener user friendly format or the technical assistance focused on gardening or agriculture.
Here are just a few labs that you might consider (there are many) that do vegetable garden, complete soil testing.
A&L Western Labratories - Medesto, CA
Denele Analytical, Inc. - Turlock, CA
Soil & Plant Laboratory-Central California - Anaheim, CA
Utah State University Analytical Labs - Logan , UT
Western Laboratories - ID, Parma https://www.unce.unr.edu/publications/files/nr/2009/fs0913.pdf https://www.unce.unr.edu/publications/files/nr/2009/fs0914.pdf
