free soil test to many sw mo residents
If you're a resident anywhere in the area shown on the map, then you're part of the James River Basin, basically South of I-44. This means you can take advantage of the many services the James River Basin Partnership offers, including Free Soil Testing!
Proper fertilization of lawns is critical to cleaner water in the Ozarks. Getting your soil tested can save you money on fertilizer by indicating your lawnÂs nutrient needs. The James River Basin Partnership is offering a FREE soil test and nutrient management plan for your yard to residents of the James River Basin. They will come out and take the samples and send you a four year plan for any amendments that would be best for your soil. This is the same test you would have to pay for thru the extension service only with much more information than the normal test.
