Crop Producers, agronomists, gardeners, homeowners and anyone else who is thinking about taking soil samples this fall or next spring need to be aware that South Dakota State University (SDSU) no longer offers commercial testing (Effective Oct., 2011). Below is a list of nearby state and private laboratories that can be used for crop production fields, gardens and lawns. The private laboratories are not necessarily recommended or endorsed; however, many will give university recommendations when asked. Crop producers, agronomists, gardeners and homeowners with questions on sample submissions, analysis charges and recommendations should contact the laboratory of interest.
