Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum) is widespread in Ohio and readily colonizes disturbed landscapes such as roadside ditches, fence rows, and other man-made features.  There are many sources of information discussing management.

Soil Sample Testing Resources Still Available

Soil Test for Farm, Lawn, and Garden

One of many services OSU Extension offers in Muskingum County is easy access to soil testing resources.  Our soil test program is based on the resources provided by the Penn State Agricultural Analytical Services Lab, University Park, Pennsylvania. As a part of our service, we provide assistance interpreting results of your soil test.

For years, this service was offered by provided soil testing kits to customers who came into the office.  Today, the current social circumstances put us in a temporary office closure.  What can we do in the meantime? The steps and links below will provide you with the same basic resources.  Be sure to read and follow directions on the sample submission forms closely.
