The Spring Landscape and Garden Soil Testing Campaign is underway in Austin County and will run through Feb. 28. This campaign is made possible through the support of the Multi-County Ag Committee and in cooperation with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Soil, Water, and Forge Testing Lab in College Station.
Soil sample bags and submittal forms for the soil testing campaign are available at the following locations including:
Austin County Extension Office, Bellville
Linseisen's Feed & Supply Inc, Bellville
Lindemann Store, Industry
Adamciks Country Store, Sealy
All soil samples and forms must be returned to the pickup location to receive the discounted pricing. Full payment by check payable to MCAF is due when the samples are submitted. Extension office staff will deliver your samples to the testing lab. Sample results will be returned to the County Extension Office and then distributed to submitters via email or regular mail.
Soil Campaign: This Soil Testing Campaign offers homeowners and gardeners the opportunity to have their soil tested to determine its current fertility and receive a recommendation to improve the fertility required to maintain and produce the best possible outcome for their garden, lawn, or landscape. This campaign is only intended for soil analysis on non-agricultural land; only samples from lawns, landscapes, and gardens will be accepted.
If you have any questions concerning the Spring Landscape and Garden Soil Testing Campaign, please contact the Austin County Extension Office 979-865-2072.
