Soil Testing through Cook Extension Office
We’re getting more interest lately about sending field soil samples through the Cook County Extension Office. UGA Extension in Cook County can process your soil samples.  Cost is $6/bag for first 100 bags in a calendar year.  Over 100 in a calendar year = $5/bag.  Results are typically back in our office by email within 5 working days.  You can pick up those results at our office or we can forward them to your email.  Basic test includes P, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, Mn, and pH.  We have soil bags and a probe we loan out in the Cook Extension Office.  Please call 896-7456 if you have more questions.
