Volunteers needed for Free Soil Testing

WWCCD is working with area agencies on a USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant and could use your help. We are seeking producers willing to participate in soil testing trials. Initially a limited number of participants will be chosen based on rainfall for their area. Researchers will not be reporting precise field locations, but individual test results will be shared with participants. A second grant, if received, will lead to testing later in the fall with different program requirements. It will also feature soils testing at no cost to participants. Please contact Renee at renee.hadley@wwccd.net or 522-6340 ext 110 if you are interested.
