Soil Testing

Asked April 23, 2018, 1:24 PM EDT

Hello, I read the article on soil tests. Have moved to an acreage and wish to start a garden. Land was used as a farm 20+ years ago, and an acreage with a grass lawn since. Before turning over soil for a garden, should I do a soil test for residual herbicides and fertilizers? And which lab would you recommend for such a test? Thank you. John

Hi John -

Sorry for the late reply. Soil testing is always a good thing. Midwest Labs at 402-334-7770 is a local firm that does soil sampling at a decent price.
