This time of year is critical to our agriculture clients. Many of them are trying to get analysis results in hand, so proper soil nutrient application can occur before winter arrives.  On the animal feed side, we are seeing an increased need for using quality analysis data for making future decisions.

Soil Testing  

November is that time of the year when soil sample volumes are at the heaviest. This year we have a great team in place that is handling soil sample volumes of 20-30,000 a day. Even with those large numbers, analysis continues to go out as scheduled. This speaks again to our lab analysts, office support and field reps who are working with our clients.

Midwest Laboratories is hosting a food conference this month. The conference has some stellar speakers on topics related to food production. More information can be found here at Voices in Food Production.

Sampling Supplies

This time of year is a busy time with supplies going out for soil sampling,   well water testing and year-end quality analysis reporting.  One of the biggest additions has been the extra-large boxes which soil samplers have taken advantage of.  Remember, with UPS or Spee-Dee you can ship more samples for the same ground rate as the other box sizes.
