A quick update for those of you planning to submit soil tests this spring. Effective April 15th, the University of Minnesota Soil Testing Laboratory has new forms and prices for conducting a soil test. The new price for a Regular Test is $17.00. This is a very reasonable price for testing pH, phosphorus, potassium, organic matter, and soil texture. If you have old forms, please throw them out. New forms can be downloaded from their website here.
