Soil Testing & Organic Fertilizer Recommendation ServiceDon’t guess—test! Applying fertilizers and soil amendments without the guidance of a professional soil test is like driving downtown with your eyes shut. Applying too much of one nutrient can tie up others and wreak havoc on your soil biology. But even with test results in hand, which fertilizer do you choose and how much do you apply? Fedco to the rescue! We’ll send you a soil test kit and sampling instructions, plus a postage-paid box to return your soil sample and test form to the Maine State Soil Lab.
You’ll learn your soil pH, organic matter percentage, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, boron, copper, manganese, zinc, and available nitrogen, plus we’ll offer customized recommendations for how to correct any deficiencies or imbalances in your soil. Order A for annual vegetable crops and B for fruit tree orchards—NEW! for 2019.
For best results, take samples during the growing season while the soil is warm. Please be patient! We are at the mercy of how busy the soil lab is at any given time.
