Soil testing kits are available from your local Cooperative Extension Office. Upon getting the kit, citizens should prepare the sample according to directions and mail it along with a $10 testing fee to the Soil Testing Lab located on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. Response time is approximately two weeks. You will receive a Soil Test Report with recommendations based on your soil type and plant needs. For more information, view the Publication "Soil Sampling for the Home Gardener". If you have any questions regarding the report call your local Extension Agent.
Soil testing kits may be picked up at the York/Poquoson Cooperative Extension Office located at 100 County Drive, Yorktown, VA.
