February 25, 2016 - Soil Sample Questionnaire for Home Grounds; UConn Soil Nutrient Analysis Laboratory

We've provided a "Soil Sample Questionnaire for Home Grounds " from the UCONN Soil Nutrient Analysis Lab. As stated on the questionnaire, soil tests aid in diagnosing only those problems resulting from a lack or  excess of certain plant nutrients, and the level of soil acidity or alkalinity. Other factors that may adversely affect plant growth include soil drainage,  rainfall, sunlight, insects, plant diseases, weeds, winter injury and misuse of pesticides. None of these is identified by the soil test. You should receive  soil test results and fertilizer recommendations within 7 to 10 days.
