AGRONOMY UPDATE

The Importance of Soil Sampling

It is that time of year when the combines are getting greased and we are gearing up for another harvest, which seems to be shaping up to be a very good one yield wise. This is the time of year that we should be evaluating our nutrient management plans and start finding out which fields need to have a soil test done on them.

There are many great benefits taking a soil test. Nutrient levels being the key one everyone thinks of but it also gives you PH, cation exchange capacity (nutrient holding capacity) and organic matter amongst others. A soil test should be treated like a report card for your nutrient management plan. Evaluation along with the proper fertilizers and at the right time all play a significant role on the results of the soil sample.

 

 

When taking a soil sample, make sure to take eight to ten cores per sample from representative areas of the field. You can use soil maps (majority of soil type) or even yield map history. Basic rule of thumb is don’t poke the probe in the cow pie and stay off the top of hills. Once you sample the field, get into the rhythm of taking those cores from the same place every 2 to 3 years. You can GPS the coordinates to come back to the next time. If you do it in the fall, try to stay into the routine of doing it in the fall for those fields.

West-Con can either take the sample for you or you can get some soil sampling bags from us and you can bring them in to us and we will get them to where they need to be.
