LEAF 2019: ​Interpreting Soil Sample Reports  will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12 by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County at the Frank W. Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.


Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about soil sampling. Topics to be covered include why it’s important to sample soils, how to take a soil sample, the difference between a pH test and a full analysis soil sample, and how to read a soil sample report. There will be a hands-on portion for this workshop that will include a demonstration on using the Cornell pH Test Kit, practice examples on how to determine fertilizer and lime application rates based on your sample report, and how to determine your soil type.

Participants for this workshop have the option of paying either $5 (covering just the course materials) or $20 (which will include a voucher for a free soil sample at a $20 value).

This workshop will be led by Josh Putman, Field Crops Specialist with Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Southwest NY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Regional Team,
