Somervell County Agriculture producers are encouraged to participate in a soil testing campaign and take advantage of a reduced cost. From now until February 13th the Texas AgriLife Extension Office in Somervell, Bosque, Coryell, Hood & Johnson counties are sponsoring a soil testing campaign for residents in each of those counties. Agriculture producers may pick up soil test bags and forms from their county extension office, pull soil samples and return soil sample bags & form to the extension office to take advantage of Routine Analysis at $6 per sample or Routine Analysis plus Micro Analysis at $10 per sample. That is a savings of $4 to $5 per sample. All samples must be routed through the County Extension office to take advantage of these discounted prices and shipping will be free. For more information or to obtain a soil sample kit contact the Somervell County Extension office at (254) 897-2809 or 1405 Texas Dr.
