Event description

Description

Having your soil tested for nutirents is a great way to figure out what the best amendments and fertilizers to use specifically for your land and plants. Experts from King County Conservation district will be joiing us to explain how to do soil sampling, how to interpret the results and the proper actions to take based on your results. As a bonus, you can either bring in your soil samples to our our March Meetup or send them in yourself (See below) so you'll have your own sample results to bring to the session for help in interpreting.

Whether you are growing forage for livestock, gardening, maintaining an orchard, or managing a woodlot for wood production, proper soil sampling will allow you to:

  • Apply the correct amount of fertilizer for the plants you are growing.
  • Prevent surface and ground water from being contaminated by excess fertilizers.
  • Ensure that soil nutrients and other conditions (such as soil acidity) affecting plant growth are present in the right amounts.

Results of soil nutrient management can include:

  • Increased plant growth, yields and quality.
  • Less purchased livestock feed and fertilizer.
  • Better utilization of manure on your pastures, lawns and gardens.
