With the forecast calling for colder temperatures this week it reminds us that before too long we will not be able to soil sample. Once frost extends down into the soil profile, sampling becomes difficult. If you are looking to find out where the pH or soil fertility is at in your fields, please call Allied Cooperative now to schedule soil sampling at your operation. By sampling now it will help you determine what amounts of lime are needed in your fields to maintain the proper pH. Also you will discover where your soil test P (phosphorous) and K (potassium) levels are at.
