Nova Scotia Soil Sampling Service 2021

Last year, the CTCNS Research Team collected and submitted more than 1,000 soil and foliar samples from Nova Scotia Christmas Tree lots through the Soil & Foliar Analysis project. Due to on-going interest in soil testing and customized nutrient recommendations, we have decided to offer soil sampling and interpretation support as a service to growers for the 2021 season.

We are beginning to take requests for soil sampling in lots during the 2021 season. Sampling will begin in late July and take place into the fall on a first come first serve basis. A fee of $50+HST per sample will be charged to cover the cost of soil testing, our team’s time, and associated travel expense.

If you would like to have your lot sampled, please reach out to us to schedule a sampling time.

If you intend to take and submit your own soil samples, we have plenty of resources available through our webinars, podcasts, and resource pages to help you interpret your results.
