Soil testing is critical step in on-farm nutrient management planning.  The quality of soil testing data is highly impacted by where and how soil samples are collected.  Fortunately, with proper planning can improve your chances of collecting informative soil tests.  In this presentation, we will discuss techniques that leverage existing environmental data to target soil sampling and give you the best shot at collecting usable soil test data.
