Soil Sample Testing

Pam coordinates the complete soil test samples sent to the Rutgers Soil Testing Lab. Once testing is completed, the results are mailed directly to gardeners so they can modify their soils to have the best possible growing conditions. The current cost for the basic testing is $20.00. For complete instructions on taking soil test samples and fees, visit the Rutgers Soil Testing Lab website. pH and soluble salt tests are done on site for $3.00 per sample.

Up-to-date information on pest and disease problems, vegetable gardening, lawn, flowers, trees, and houseplant care is available through the home horticulture program. Samples can be brought to the Extension Center for identification and management options.
