Soil Testing Season Remains Strong Through November

Soil SamplingEven with today’s rains, soil samples are still being brought in for analysis. The ground temperatures are still warm enough for sampling and crews are fighting the elements to get those remaining soil samples out of the ground.

In addition, Midwest Laboratories Shipping Department continues to send out soil bags, soil probes, boxes and return shipping labels. If you are looking for soil sampling supplies, consider opening a Midwest Laboratories Account today if you don’t have one yet.

Still unsure what soil analysis results can give you, check out the “Interpreting Soil Analysis” Document.

Soil Sampling and Precision Ag

soil samplingPrecision Agriculture is the new concept that people are trying to understand. How does soil analysis, sampling, mapping and reporting fit together. Soil sampling is one part of this program.  More and more people are seeing the value in grid sampling their fields and they are getting prepared as we speak.  This was noted yesterday with some activities that occurred at Midwest Laboratories.

  • Yesterday, one company alone picked up 40,000 soil bags. Another company ordered 20,000 soil bags.
  • Another company picked up 500 shipping labels.
  • In addition, 10 individuals opened accounts just yesterday in preparation of conducting soil testing this fall.

Soil Sampling Programs are really taking off and helping growers manage the nutrients in their soil and understand which parts of their fields have sufficient nutrients and where other areas are deficient.

If you are looking for a good site that looks at soil sampling techniques check out this site, Soil Sampling for Precision Agriculture.
