  • Soil testing will allow your crop advisor to help you maximize your crops potential

When should you soil test your field? 

  • Soil test between February through April in order to have a spring application 
  • Soil test between August through October in order to have a fall application 
  • Sample the same time every year in order to have accurate test results in order to compare each years test
  • Avoid summer sampling because as you move the salt in the soil around it changes your pH levels
For most soils it takes more than one year to make significant changes to your soil test levels. As your soil improves with Valley Agronomics services, growers can improve their yield potentials.
