Free soil testing to save money

Save money by testing your soil! A soil test will determine the amount of nutrients on your field and help you calculate the amount of fertilizer needed for your next crop.  The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas Water Resources Institute are once again offering free soil testing for agricultural producers in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. This program supports the implementation of the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan and will result in reduced nutrient loading to area waterbodies all while saving the producer’s input costs.

The Arroyo Colorado stretches for 90 miles through the heart of the Lower Rio Grande Valley and empties into the Lower Laguna Madre.
