About Us

The Soil, Forage and Water Testing Laboratory at Auburn University was established in February 1953 as a cooperative effort of the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. The primary mission of the lab is to provide an unbiased and economical fertilizer and lime recommendation service to Alabama growers.

To obtain supplies or information for any of these and other services, please contact either your county Extension System office or the Soil & Forage Testing Laboratory. The lab is located at the ALFA Agricultural Services & Research Building, 961 S. Donahue Drive, and is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm, and 1:00 to 5:00 pm.

If you have any questions about soil testing or the services we provide, please contact us or your local county Extension agent. Thank you.
