The King Conservation District provides free soil tests for all landowners in their service area.
Each year you can submit up to five samples to test for major and micro-nutrients, pH and organic matter. Based on lab results, King Conservation District staff will provide recommendations specific to your plant needs.
This service is available to everyone from commercial farmers to backyard gardeners. Member cities are also using the program to improve soils in their community gardens. Visit KCD’s website to learn how to request a free soil test, including detailed instructions on how to take a soil sample: www.kingcd.org/pro_far_soi.htm.
