How can I get my soil tested?
You can obtain a soil sample kit at Pasco County Cooperative Extension. They do not test soils for pH; therefore, it is not necessary to bring soil sample(s) to the offices. They do have soil kits in the office that include instructions on how to take the sample(s), bag(s) to contain the soil sample(s), but they no longer have the self-addressed box for mailing the sample(s).

There is no cost for the kit, but there is a $3 cost per sample for pH testing or $7 cost per sample for pH plus macronutrient testing; it is important that your check is made out to the University of Florida and mailed with the sample(s). NOTE: if you do not make your check out to University of Florida, your sample(s)will be sent back.

You will receive the original report from the Soils Lab and Pasco Extension office will receive a copy of the report; if you are in further need of interpretation of the report, call the Pasco Extension office. It usually takes 10-14 days for a report to return to you.
