Hello, Here is a link to UKY publication explaining how to take a good soil sample. The procedure is generally the same, but can vary slightly from a garden to a hay field. https://knox.ca.uky.edu/files/agr16_taking_soil_test_samples.pd_.pdf After collecting your sample, you will place two cups of dry, unclodded soil into the sample bags that are available from our office. Drop off samples and complete crop information chart with office staff. Samples are mailed on Friday to lab for testing. When tests are complete I will analyze and make specific recommendations for your crop and results are mailed. Please call me at the office to discuss further should you have questions.
