Answer

Soil test kits are available from the Philadelphia County Extension office. The test kits cost $10 each and include directions for taking the sample and paperwork for the report, a sample bag and a mailer. The actual soil testing is done at the Agricultural Analytical Services lab at the main Penn State campus in University Park. For more information, call 215-471-2200 or visit the Penn State web page on soil and water testing.
