Picture of Soil in Hands
One of the first steps to having a successful lawn or garden is having your soil tested. A soil test provides more information about the nutrient status of your soil, pH level, organic matter content and texture. The test report also suggests various soil management practices to improve the fertility of the soil for a given crop. You can get your lawn and garden soil tested at the Extension Brown County Office. 
 

Follow these steps to properly submit your soil sample at the Extension Office:

  1. Properly sample your soil; a total of 2 cups is required for testing. For more information on how to sample your soil, please click here.
     
  2. Fill out the lawn and garden soil sample submission form.  Click here to download the form.  Please leave the payment information blank.  If you are unsure how to complete the form, please wait to fill out the form at our office and we can help.
