WVU Extension News
Now is the best time to be take soil samples to send in to the WVU Extension Service lab for testing. With the high cost of fertilizers it is important to know what the fertility status of soil is and how much or how little fertilizer is needed to achieve a desired yield, no matter what the crop is. Late summer and fall are the best times to send in samples because farmers will avoid the spring rush and it will allow time to evaluate the analysis and develop a management plan for a particular situation and an opportunity to possibly order fertilizers at lower winter prices, so get those samples taken and sent in as soon as the crops are removed. The Greenbrier Valley Conservation District offers soil sampling services for $5/sample. You may contact GVCD Grassland Technician Jarrett McLaughlin to inquire about sampling at 304-799-4317 and if you chose to collect your own samples kits are available at the WVU Extension office or by calling 304-799-4852.
