Soil testing is a special chemical analysis that provides a guideline for lime and fertilizer needs of soils when considered in conjunction with post-fertilizer mangement and cropping history. The Division of Regulatory Services Laboratories offer soil testing to the public through the Cooperative Extension Service. The Soil Laboratory analyzes soil to provide guidance for improving plant vitality and crop yield. There is no fee for Kenton County residents.
