Time for Soil Testing
With warmer temperatures indicated spring is just around the corner it’s a great time to get a jump start on gardening and farming chores. With a significant increase in nutrient prices farmers and gardeners alike can save themselves substantial dollars by taking a soil test and applying only the nutrients required to grow the crop they’re focused on. Learn more about how to test your soil and interpret your test results at soiltesting.wvu.edu/ or call the WVU Extension Office at 304-799-4852.
