New Soil Test Form and Procedure

Use the soil test form to submit your soil tests. You will need to supply your own bag (snack size ziploc, small sandwich, or other bag that can be tied or sealed) for this method. You only need to send about 1/2 cup of soil from your combined samples to be tested. You will be able to mail these in a regular envelope or a priority mailer(flat rate or standard) works well when sending multiple samples.

Please be sure to mail the samples to:
West Virginia University
College of Agriculture and Forestry
Soil Testing Laboratory
Morgantown, WV 26506-6108

Once the tests are run the results are instantly sent via email to you and your local county agent!
