Soil Testing

Obtain a soil sample bag and form You can get soil sample bags and forms from your local county extension office, the Soil, Water, and Forage Testing Laboratory at Texas A&M University, or you can print out a Soil Sample Information Form (PDF) and use a pint sized plastic bag as your soil sample bag.

Once you have taken the soil sample, seal it in an official sample bag or a plastic bag. Mail your sample and information sheet to the Soil, Water, and Forage Testing Laboratory along with a check or money order (made payable to Soil Testing Laboratory).
