Testing your soil can make the difference between small farm failure and small farm success. Feeding the soil and balancing it with the proper ratios of nutrients is the secret to healthy, happy crops - and farmers. But how do you know what to feed your soil? You start by getting it tested, so that you know what it's lacking and if there are any issues you need to be aware of.

Soil testing isn't expensive and it isn't hard to do, but it needs to be done right. Learn the steps involved and how to get a great sample for your soil test.
