Field days, workshops, demonstrations, consultations, and broadcast and print media are utilized in providing information to county citizens. Clients The Cooperative Extension Service serves all citizens. Educational programs benefit rural and urban residents, community leaders, farmers, homemakers, parents, and youth. There is no charge for services. However, minimal fees may be charged for educational materials and testing services.

SOIL TESTING
A soil test is a process by which elements (phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulfur, manganese, copper, and zinc) are chemically removed from the soil and measured for their "plant available" content within the sample. The quantity of available nutrients in the sample determines the amount of fertilizer that is recommended. A soil test also measures soil pH, humic matter, and exchangeable acidity. Soil testing is a valuable tool in managing the mineral nutrition of the soil. It can help avoid overfertilization, thus preventing pollution of water supplies. Excess nutrients applied but not used by plants will most likely be leached into groundwater. A soil test is the only reliable method to determine the soil pH. As a rule, sandy-textured soils should be tested every 2-3 years and clay soils every 3-4 years. However, if problems occur during the growing season, send in a soil sample for analysis. Soil samples may be taken anytime throughout the year. It is recommended that home lawns be sampled every year. For lawns, late summer (mid-August) is appropriate. Collect soil samples 3-6 months before planting. The turn-around time for samples submitted from mid-October through mid-April may be several weeks due to the large numbers of samples usually being handled at this time. Samples submitted from mid-April through October are usually analyzed within a few days. Soil test results will be mailed directly to the person submitting the sample. In addition, the Cooperative Extension Service will have access to the soil test report. Contact the Cooperative Extension Service regarding soil test report questions. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service's Agronomic Division in Raleigh will analyze soil samples free of charge. Soil sample boxes and data information sheets may be obtained from and returned to the following locations:
