    Where does everyone get their tests done. My local extension will do a basic test, but not what I want/need. So who are you all using?

    I guess the first question would be ... what do you want/need?

    Also I think someone posted something on a lab in Mass or general region that had some really good prices.

    We use A&L Labs for soil tests. http://al-labs-eastern.com/

    For soil bio-assays, you're going to have to use SFI NY or the main lab in Oregon. I don't know if the NY branch is accepting new customers yet.

    Rutgers is cool but they charge a small arm and a part of your big toe for the extra OM test. :cry:
