Lack of mineral nutrition in the soil can increase the cost of production and result in reduced crop yield and profitability. Does constant fertilizer use cause mineral depletion? Which is the best soil testing method, and what is the recommended frequency?

A soil sample should be taken once in three years. Also, it is advisable to carry out soil testing when there is a change of crop or if the farmer faces problems during the growing season.

This is a complicated question. A local extension office can be very valuable here. If you have a simple, one crop type of operation, once every few years should be fine.
