The KSU Soil Testing Lab is a full service lab providing excellent service to agricultural producers for the analysis of:

Farmer samples are sent to us in two different ways. First, many producers submit their sample(s) to their local county extension agent, who then sends the sample(s) to the KSU Soil Testing Lab. In this case, results are typically sent back to the county extension agent, who reviews the sample data and makes recommendations for fertilizer application (if requested). Here, the farmer will pay for the soil analysis at the county extension office.

Alternatively, the farmer can mail the sample directly to the lab or can simply bring the sample into the lab. In both instances, the results will be sent directly to the producer with recommendations included (if requested). Please note that a Sample Information Sheet should be completed in full and submitted with the sample.
