WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT CARA'S SOIL HEALTH ASSESSMENT TESTING COMPARED TO MY USUAL SOIL TEST?

Find all of the forms we have to download on our Forms page.

WHERE CAN I SEE ALL THE FORMS I CAN DOWNLOAD?

A Soil Health Assessment can be used annually to measure soil health and the impact of management practices over time. Samples should generally be taken at the same time of year and from the same location if possible or similar location.

 

If your soil is from a known county/area that has a Soil-Borne disease (example Clubroot), please notify staff so as not to spread any soil-borne diseases and to ensure proper quarantine Protocols are followed.

WHEN SHOULD I USE THE SOIL HEALTH ASSESSMENT TEST? 

You will not automatically receive a confirmation that we received your samples, however, if you wish to email (carashl@telus.net) and ask to receive a confirmation, we can let you know when they arrive.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY SAMPLES HAVE ARRIVED SAFELY?
