Master Crop Code List for Routine Soil Testing

In order to make lime and fertilizer recommendations, we need to know what you are growing.  We use Crop Codes to learn this information so that we can give you the appropriate recommendations.  Crop Codes are listed on the second page of each of the Routine Soil Analysis order forms. 

Order forms for Routine Soil Analysis are divided into four sub-categories: Turf, Ornamentals, and Landscaping; Home Grounds and Gardening, Commercial Vegetable and Fruit Crops; and Forage and Grain Crops.  In the event that you cannot find what you need on the order form you have chosen, a complete list is supplied in the PDF above.
