Soil Samples: As we have now moved into spring, it is still a great time to sample your fields, gardens, or lawns to see what type and how much fertilizer you need to make the soil as productive as possible. For each sample you want to submit, we need at least one pint (sandwich bag) of dry soil 4-8 inches below the soil surface. Please put your name and sample ID (north lawn, hayfield 2, etc.) on each bag. This is a free service provided by the Spencer Co. Conservation District. Thanks to them for sponsoring the soil sampling program.
Our office is open normal business hours, but you have the option to drop off your samples anytime you like. As you pull into our parking lot, please go to the right to the back of our building. You will then see our pavilion and on the pavilion, you will see a blue tub to the right of the double doors. Inside the tub, you will find some paperwork that you will need to fill out so that we can properly test your soil. Place the paperwork and samples back into the tub. I’ll review the results and mail them back to you in 2-3 weeks. Due to the recent tornado and total loss of the soil testing lab in Princeton, all samples for Kentucky are being sent to Lexington so your wait time may be a little bit longer.
