Soil sampling sweet cherry orchard
Hello, I am looking to do a soil sample on our 45 acre sweet cherry orchard. I have done a lot of research and feel like I have a good understanding of the process, but I just was wondering if there were any additional resources or advice on how to conduct the samples correctly. Also - I want to be sure I include the correct form and paperwork along with the sample when mailing them to the lab, if you have any information on that process. Thank you!

There is sampling information on the MSU website http://homesoiltest.msu.edu. You can also use our soil test kit self mailer which can be purchased from this website: http://homesoiltest.msu.edu. The self-mailer comes with instructions. For more detailed instructions and advice tailored to your particular site I would recommend reaching out to your local MSU Extension office by phone and/or taking advantage of the resources on the Leelanau County MSU Extension Horticulture page: https://www.canr.msu.edu/leelanau/home_horticulture.
