Abstract/Contents:Discusses soil testing, suggesting that "the collection of a proper sample is a crucial step in the soil testing process." Provides potential tips to utilize during the sampling process, suggesting to collect the soil "when the soil is dry enough to be crumbly in your hand." Briefly details collecting samples for large areas of soil and concludes that "testing every two or three years is usually frequent enough to keep the pH [potential hydrogen] and nutrient levels of an athletic field within the optimum range."
