Soil tests should be a regular part of maintenance for everyone growing crops and grass in the Pacific Northwest. From farmers to hobby gardeners, to those who just want a nice lawn, a soil test will help ensure you get the most out of your land.
Soil tests, which are sold at most of our Country Store locations, can show you what micronutrients and macronutrients are missing from your soil. When you know what’s missing you can balance your soil and achieve optimum growth.
