What is the cost for a soil test?
Rate This FAQ
The "routine" soil test costs $14. This tells you the soil texture, pH, salinity, phosphorous (P) and potassium (K). Results are sent directly to you and also to the USU Extension agent in your county. Results give recommendations for fertilizer applications according to the crop to be grown in that soil.
You can download instructions and order forms for soil tests at the Utah State University Analytical Laboratory website: www.usual.usu.edu
Be sure to follow the instructions on taking a representative soil sample so that analysis results lead to sound recommendations.
