K-TESST was created to help Knoxville, TN residents learn more about their soil and water quality and the health of their local environment. We provide test kits with soil texture, soil nitrogen, soil phosphorus, and soil pH tests that allow you to test a soil sample of your choosing. While most testing services do similar tests, we want you to understand what these tests really mean. This website and our corresponding pamphlet have tons of educational information about each testing metric and what it means for your soil.
In addition, we would love to see your findings! Please use the form on our website or in your kit to submit the results of your tests. Thanks for being a citizen scientist and taking part in learning more about the soil and water quality in Knoxville!
