Sampling


We offer soil sampling options from standard field sampling to grid sampling on 2.5-acre grids to create VRA (variable-rate application) maps.

Full service customers of Edd’s Supplies qualify for free standard soil sampling every 3 years.  Maps are digital and published in booklet form with fertilizer recommendations.

Grid sampling provides site specific results with samples pulled on 2.5 acre grids.  These results are also published with digital maps in booklet form with detailed VRA recommendation maps.  Grid Sampling and VRA application maps allow product to be applied efficiently – where it is needed.

We send our soil samples to A&L Great Lakes Labs in Fort Wayne, IN for analysis.  A&L Labs offers full service soil, plant and water testing and quick turn around.
