Soil Sampling

Feb 07, 2022

By Kendra Oliphant, Ag Tech Specialist

Soil Sampling is a very important part of your field’s overall health. You wouldn’t go to the doctor and ask for antibiotics if you don’t need them, right? So why would you just blanket spread fertilizers where you don’t need them? When you get your field soil sampled you know exactly what your field needs. Whether its nitrogen or potassium or any other type of fertilizer you can make the best decisions for that field. Sandier parts of your fields will leach nutrients faster than other types of soils, and you’ll be able to see that. Soybeans are going to fixate nitrogen meaning you shouldn’t have to put as much down next season.  Knowledge is powerful, and the best way to know is to get your soil sampled. Call your agronomist for more info.
