What you can expect
Once you purchase your soil testing service, you’ll be able to set-up an appointment time with our Soil Testing Team.
They will meet you at your field to begin the process. It’s important you are there as well so we know the parameters of your field as well as any areas of concern or that have variances (low yielding, hardpan areas, bottoms, etc).
Once completed, we will submit for analysis of which all findings will be reported to you from the lab as well as our agronomist’s thoughts and personalized recommendations on how and when amendments should be applied.
We here at RSS know that soil fertility and amendment programs can be daunting at times and would like to make these decisions as pain free as possible for you by providing options and prioritizing soil needs that will be a best fit for you and your farm’s needs.

Do I need a Soil Test?
Here are some signs you may need a test:
Crop yield has been declining
Plants are showing signs of nutrient deficiencies, such as stunted growth or yellowing leaves
pH levels in the soil may be too acidic or alkaline
Soil texture may be preventing adequate water retention or nutrient uptake by plants
Poor drainage in the soil or an excessive amount of water
When should I get a Soil Test?
The frequency and timing of soil testing can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the specific crops being grown, the soil type and conditions, and the farming practices being used. Here are some general guidelines for how often and when farmers should get a soil test:
Initial soil test: Farmers should get an initial soil test before planting their first crop in a new field or after making significant changes to their farming practices. This initial soil test provides a baseline for future testing and helps farmers understand the nutrient levels and other characteristics of their soil.
Routine soil testing: After the initial soil test, farmers should generally get a routine soil test every 2-3 years. This can help them track changes in nutrient levels over time and adjust their fertilization practices accordingly. However, if there are significant changes in the farming practices, such as a change in the crop being grown or a change in the fertilization program, more frequent soil testing may be necessary.
Pre-planting soil test: A pre-planting soil test should be done in the early spring, before planting begins. This test can help farmers determine the nutrient levels in the soil and adjust their fertilization program accordingly.
Post-harvest soil test: A post-harvest soil test should be done in the fall after harvest. This test can help farmers assess the nutrient levels and other characteristics of the soil after the growing season and adjust their fertilization program for the following year.
Soil tests during the growing season: In some cases, farmers may want to perform soil tests during the growing season to monitor nutrient levels and make adjustments as needed. This is particularly important for crops with high nutrient demands, such as fruits and vegetables.
To determine nutrient levels: A soil test can determine the amount of essential nutrients present in the soil, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This information can help farmers determine which fertilizers to use and in what quantities.
To identify nutrient deficiencies: A soil test can also identify any nutrient deficiencies in the soil. This information can help farmers address these deficiencies through targeted fertilization or crop selection.
To optimize pH levels: Soil pH can have a significant impact on plant growth and nutrient uptake. A soil test can identify if the pH levels are too acidic or alkaline, and recommendations can be made to adjust the pH levels accordingly.
To identify potential contaminants: Soil tests can also identify any potential contaminants in the soil, such as heavy metals, pesticides, or herbicides. This information is critical for farmers who want to produce crops that are safe for human consumption.
To maximize crop yield: By providing farmers with a detailed analysis of the soil, a soil test can help them develop a customized fertilization plan and other farming practices that will optimize crop yield.
To save money: A soil test can help farmers avoid over-fertilizing, which not only wastes money but can also have negative impacts on the environment. By providing targeted fertilization recommendations, farmers can save money while still achieving maximum crop yield.
