Hi,

If this is your first time getting your soil tested or it's been a while, you might check if your local Master Gardener volunteer program offers complimentary soil pH testing, which would be a good place to start before ordering more detailed soil tests. Master Gardeners can talk to you about your goals for your garden and suggest what kinds of soil tests are helpful to consider. Find them here: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/mg/marion/have-gardening-question

If you do decide to order more soil tests, this Extension resource includes a list of all the analytical labs in the state and what their specialties are: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/em8677

Please contact labs directly for pricing.
