Soil Testing Locations

Soil testing is usually performed to determine nutrient content, composition and other characteristics of your soils. Tests may also measure fertility and indicate deficiencies that may need to be remedied. 

OSU Extension Licking County accepts soil samples for testing.  Call 740-670-5315 for sample-gathering procedures.
