OSU Extension does not offer soil testing. If you're looking for soil pH tests, there are some do-it-yourself tests available at garden centers. If you are looking for more extensive testing, here is an Oregon State Extension publication that lists soil testing services (Analytical Laboratories Serving Oregon). https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/em8677.pdf Check the lab websites for actual services offered and costs.

Also for your information is another OSU Extension publication that tells you how you should gather your soil sample(s) (A Guide to Collecting Soil Samples for Farms and Gardens). https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/ec628.pdf
