How To Take A Soil Sample
A quality soil sample will ensure maximum test accuracy. Combining soil from multiple locations provides the best results. Watch our video on how to take a sample and follow these simple steps
To generate a composite sample:
Collect 3-6 soil samples from multiple locations in your desired test area. (Sample depth can vary based on plant type, with the effective rooting zone as your target depth.) Samples should be free of any plant material and other debris.
Combine these samples in a large plastic bag and mix thoroughly.
Once soil is thoroughly mixed, follow the kit instructions for sample preparation and shipment.

“N-P-K” Represents the percentage per weight of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus in the form of Phosphate (P-P2O5), and Potassium in the form of Potash (K-K2O) in a fertilizer blend. For example: a 10 pound bag marked 10-5-10 would contain 1 pound (10% of 10 pounds) Nitrogen, 0.5 pounds (5% of 10 pounds) Phosphate, and 1 pound (10% of 10 pounds) Potash.
