Manure and compost are valuable inputs that can enrich the quality of your soil. But guessing at the nutrient content of these substances is a mistake! Without accurate testing, you might be applying too much or too little, resulting in poor crop health and environmental concerns. Send samples to Ward Laboratories and we’ll help you calibrate your manure and compost applications to best meet your production goals.
