A fertile loam in the hands of a farmer man.



We have been independently soil sampling with our unbiased approach at Vogel Crop Services since 2008. We sample three different ways: by grid, by soil type, and by management zones.

Our grid sizes vary from 2.5-20 acres depending on how specific a customer wants to be with his information. We will also make recommendations for you or send your information to your retailer for him to make recommendations. We recommend that you sample every 2-4 years.
