Complete Soil Testing Solution
One partner for all of your sampling needs
Solum operates a full service lab in Ames, IA to provide farmers and their service providers information they need to focus their input dollars where they will generate the highest yield and return.
- Standard soil measurement package includes P, K, pH, Buffered pH, Organic Matter, S, Zn, Ca, Mg, Na, %BSAT, CEC
- Additional results such as Nitrate-Nitrogen, Micronutrients (Fe, Cu, B, Mn), or Phosphorus tests using the Bray or Olsen methods can be added for a small fee.
Solum delivered more than 1 million data points in its first year giving customers the information they need to manage hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland. Call 1-855-GO-SOLUM to learn more.

We have really been trying to push yields in these fields, but with conventional soil sampling, we weren’t getting the yields we wanted.. When we applied potash VRT on 2.5-acre grids according to the moist samples, we were applying more in the areas where it was needed. We saw yields climb dramatically, up to 260-270 bu. in areas where we had never seen those yields before. It is tough to tell, but we expect a 5% yield increase with field-moist sampling over conventional dry.”
