Shipping Instructions

Completing the Form

On the forms page, select the form that fits the request you are making. Completely fill in the general information at the top of the form. Fill in the rest of the information as completely as possible. This is necessary for accurate recommendations, if required. These points are particularly critical. Be sure to:

  • Indicate which tests are desired.
  • Indicate the intended crop(s), yield goals, and the previous crop so recommendations can be made.
  • Note any special conditions that might exist in the space for remarks so that the person making the recommendations may more fully visualize the conditions on your field.
