Since 2013, we have sampled fields and found soil nitrogen levels ranging between 11 and 168 lbs N per acre. This can be a opportunity to reducing costs without affecting yields. On average, fields can save $15-$20 by reducing fertilizer rates based on soil tests to 24″.
You may find this service from several different sources including your IPM program in Calhoun, Refugio and Victoria Counties.
The Mid-Coast IPM Program is equipped to soil test with a hydraulic soil probe that samples to a depth of 24″.
