Crop and Analysis Codes for Landscape & Vegetable Garden Test Information Sheet

(Use Form SL-136)

This test conducts two types of analyses.

Test A : pH and Lime Requirement Test will give the information about Soil pH and Lime Requirement.

Note : This test is especially for you if you Use only complete fertilizers (such as 16-4-8), follow the generic fertilizer
recommendations in IFAS landscape and vegetable garden publications, or need only the soil pH test.
 

Test B : Soil Fertility Test will give information about Soil pH, Lime Requirement, P, K, Ca, and Mg.

Note : Test B will enable you to tailor use of single-element fertilizers based on existing soil fertility status. However,
if you use a complete fertilizer, such as 10-10-10, the extra tests for extractable P, K, Mg, and Ca are of little value.
 

Following is a list of crops with corresponding crop codes for which the above tests A & B will be conducted.

Crop Code is used by the Laboratory Computer Program to generate appropriate recommendations.
Testing fee schedule is given below.
