Soil is a precious resource that is vital to our lives. We grow our food in it, build our home and businesses on it, animals live in it and our children play with it. The Allen Soil and Water Conservation District is dedicated to promoting soil health for farmers, home owners, businesses and contractors in Allen County. We can help you control erosion, consult with you about the use of fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides, connect you with soil testing services and much more. The first step is knowing what kind of soil you have and how it affects you. Learn more about a web soil survey here.
If you’d like to have your soil tested, we recommend that you contact the Penn State Agricultural Analytical Services lab here.
Let us know if you have any questions about soil and how to keep it healthy.
