I don't have any experience with soil grid testing but a google search explained it's often a soil test every 1-4 acres. At $10 a test (also google info) that would be $250-$1000 on a 100 acre place. I'm not sure every 4 aces would provide any usable info on this place and spending a $1,000 seems like a high price to pay for results that would likely tell me the sandy areas with more weeds are the problem areas. Am I missing something here?Zero value if you overapply nutrients. So feeding needs it to be "uniform" and nutrients need to be limiting. Soil grid testing is very helpful with this.
Higher hay fertility value this year since salt fertilizer costs have gone way up. Was $28 per ton grassy hay a couple years ago.
