Fall is an excellent time to soil sample fields for nutrients following harvest. With low commodity prices and potentially higher fertilizer prices, it is key to use fertilizer wisely and being efficient as possible with the fertilizer that is applied. With the erratic weather patterns and some torrential rains we sometimes have received, there is potential for nutrients to be lost through erosion, leaching or denitrification. You may want to consider soil sampling fields for nutrients, such as phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and nitrogen.
