Jessamine County Extension Offers Free Soil Testing
The Jessamine County Extension Service’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Program is now offering FREE SOIL TESTING starting on October 1st. This offer is good for TWO free tests per household for residential soil tests and up to SIX free tests for commercial enterprise per calendar year. Contact the Jessamine County Extension Office for more information.

Taking a Soil Sample

It is very important you test your soil each year.  With the cost of fertilizer remaining high, a soil test can save you money on the farm.  It's best if multiple samples are taken for the area you want tested.  You will need to go about 4-6 inched underneath grass and mix in a bucket per sample. Stop by the office and pick up your soil bags or bring us about 2 cups per sample in a ziploc bag.  Generally we can get soil test back in about 10 days.
