soil testing services that offer recommendations?

Hi,

I am aware that there are very many universities who offer soil testing services that include amendment recommendations.

But most of them require 2-3 weeks turn around.

I am wondering if anyone know of a 1 week or less turnaround source for testing that includes recommendations.

I know Logan Labs offers a 3-4 day turnaround. But I've never used them and could not determine by looking at their website that they offer recommendations along with their results.

Can anyone help?

Heard back from Logan Labs...their recommendations are an additional $30 over the analysis costs.

I have used them both. Logan gives more in depth recommendations IMHO.
