Michigan State University Extension is launching a new soil testing program after the closing of the MSU Soil and Plant Nutrient Laboratory at the end of last year.

Soil health educator Christina Curell tells Brownfield the cost of upgrading and staffing the lab after a few key retirements were not the best use of resources.

“It was felt that the best use of public resources was to close the lab and work in partnership with a commercial lab that had more resources and already had the equipment needed,” she explains.
