Definition of soil analysis

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Another name for a soil test - an analysis of a soil sample is done to determine if the soil pH is within the proper range for the plants you wish to grow in the soil.

In an actively used garden bed or vegetable garden plot, the soil should be analyzed every few years, so that only the necessary type and amount of fertilizer is applied.
