New Soil Testing Equipment

Post Rock Extension District is grateful for the support from the Solomon Valley Community Foundation to purchase new soil testing equipment for the Beloit Office. The equipment includes a soil probe, a soil testing kit including a bucket with augers (12” and 24”) and a portable drill. This equipment is available for producers and gardeners of Mitchell County to check out and use for obtaining soil samples for testing their soil for nutrient needs. There is also a handheld pH tester for our Post Rock Extension District staff to use for monitoring and testing the soil pH for clients.

Fall is a great time to take a soil test, stop by the office today!
