Yes, every extension office in KY offers soil testing. In Boyle Co. the first 30 tests a year are free. You will need to bring in about 2 cups of soil per sample in a bag, or swing by our office to pick up soil bags. We recommend 2 cups of the first 6-8" of soil.

In the spring, we average about a 14 day turn-around due to the influx of samples this time of year. If you require any further information please feel free to call me at the office at 236-4484.
