    Iv'e been doing a search on pricing and applications of fert, seeding and such. I keep reading about testing the soils ph. Is there a test kit that you can buy or do you send it out and get a lab result? I'll be going through the pesticide school put on by the wisconsin dept of agriculture in a couple of weeks. Not sure if this is something that they cover or not. Like always guys all your help is much appriciated, thanks again.

    I do mine thru Lesco. Many states also offer them thru the Ag depts. Also, CLC Labs is one of the biggest, don't have their number here but a quick search of the web should find it.

    Their website:
    www.lesco.com

    Not the most informative site. Call their 1-800 to find the location nearest you.
