Agvise Laboratories soil scientist John Breker tells farmers to plan now for soil sampling, especially with the possibility of a late spring. “Make sure your soil testing plan and fertilizer decisions are made as soon as possible. It will be a very compressed time for all agronomists and crop consultants,” says Breker. “If you didn’t get your fields soil tested last fall, make sure you get fields sampled.” Fields should be fit before collecting those samples. Breker says farmers can collect two foot cores while there is still some frost at depth.
