WSDA will pay for soil health analysis for eligible projects

Are you a Washington state grower, an agricultural professional, a graduate student, or a conservation district staff member who wants to soil sample?

Are you interested in contributing soils data to the WaSHI State of the Soils Assessment? Beginning in March of 2022, Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) will pay for a laboratory soil health analysis for eligible projects, in exchange for support in collecting soil samples and grower management surveys.

WSDA will also provide training and individualized soil health reports for participating growers. Soils data will be used to measure soil health across different regions and crops in Washington. This information will help WSDA protect grower livelihoods, environmental sustainability, and food security in Washington.

For more information or to apply by Tuesday, Jan,. 25, at 5 p.m. PST, visit:

WSDA will also be hosting a virtual Q&A on Tuesday, Dec. 14, at 1 p.m. PST.
