Lawn and Garden

  • Do you have an unknown insect that is attacking your crop, landscape or garden? We prefer pictures (with a ruler or common object to help determine size) or dead samples (put in a plastic zip bag and freeze).

  • Do you need a soil report prior to planting your crop, lawn or garden? We can send your soil to the K-State Soil Testing Lab and provide follow-up recommendations.

  • Do you need someone to provide advice about your trees (or lawn, etc) and not be worried that they are trying to sell you product? We are here to provide research-based information that can equip you to make an informed decision.
