Easy-to-Use Soil Test Kit

Have you wondered if your efforts to amend your soil are working, but don't know how to test your soil? You are not alone.

Redmond's Soil Test Kit, powered by MySoil, makes testing your soil simple and easy. This test successfully combines accurate soil testing technologies with an easy-to-use customer experience that assists in improving soil and plant health, while effortlessly guiding sustainable practices.

Our goal is to support users in perfecting their soil to grow the healthiest plants possible. This custom approach helps you know exactly what your soils need to thrive. No PhD required.

FAST, THOROUGH, AND CONVENIENT

Redmond's soil test kit is simple to use, delivers results in 6-8 days, and provides convenient access to your data on our easy to use dashboard.


HELPS YOU GROW HEALTHIER PLANTS

Healthy plants come from healthy soil. Whether your plants are for eating, looking at, or playing on…soil testing should be the first step. From here, you can accurately feed your soil environment including microbes, fungi, insects, and more. Feeding your soil increases the chemical and biological availability of the nutrients and minerals your plants need to thrive, and passes health benefits up the food chain for all to enjoy.

SAVES YOU MONEY

By honing in on exactly what your soil needs, Redmond's soil test kit saves you from making unnecessary purchases and helps you know how much to apply so you get more bang for your buck.

ELIMINATES GUESSWORK / PREVENTS MISAPPLICATION

Stop guessing and start growing! Testing allows you to make educated and informed decisions about how to help your soil. Soil health is a balancing act. Applying the wrong amendments, or even overapplying the right amendments, can throw this balance off and have far reaching and long lasting effects. Misapplication and overapplication can kill off the essential microbe colonies in your soil and even cause eutrophication or “nutrient pollution.” Excess nutrients, especially those found in NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) fertilizers, leach out and pollute waterways. Soil testing results provide you with application rates that help you apply only what is needed and fertilize in a responsible and sustainable way.

  • Phosphorus (P)
  • Potassium (K)
  • Sulfur (s)
  • Calcium (Ca)
  • Magnesium (Mg)
  • Sodium (Na)

pH levels (balance between acidity and alkalinity)

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TEST MY SOIL?

If you are actively growing and harvesting from a plot of soil, testing every year is ideal (preferably in the fall). If you are fallowing or resting ground between growing sessions you can test once every 2 years. Don't wait more than 3 years to test soil. If you test in the fall, amend, and put soil to bed over the winter, then testing again in the spring can give you an idea of how well your amendments corrected soil problems.
