Joel Klocke, son of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Klocke, returned home WHY SOIL TEST? Today's farmer must farm for maximum net profit. Where should he begin ? Certified seed ? The latest equipment ? No .... the first place to start is at the soil fertility level, with a good soil sample and an accurate soil test report. Soil tests are only the beginning. When combined with application of fertilizer according to recommendations and top notch management, they form the basis for successful farming. Soil testing can make the farmer money in several ways. First, a soil test can show where fertilizer nutrient deficiencies may exist, and based upon the situation, could alter a cropping rotation. It can show the farmer where he has been using too much as well as too little fertilizer for economic returns. It will give a good indication of the soil's potential productive capacity, allowing for management practices to increase production or divert the land to a more productive use. Farmers who have their soils tested and follow the recommendations make money by using the maximum fertilizer required for top profits. It is not common to double yields by adopting a good management program which includes soil testing support. Basically, a soil test is a tool . ... the first tool.... that should be used in developing a farming operation that is sound .... agronomically and financially. Included with all other management practices, it is only a link in the success chain of crop production. If it is omitted, the chain is broken and can be used only in bits and pieces.
