Pulling an infield mix sample is critical to determining the best approach to adding new infield mix to an existing infield. Pulling a sample is a relatively easy process, below are the steps.
#1 - Have a bucket and a shovel ready:
#2 - Push all conditioner to the side - do not include this material with the sample:
#3 - Pull 4-8 samples across the infield at a four inch depth - this is the depth that the infield will be tilled/blended. Note in the photo below a clear layering of infield mixes is present:
#4 - Agitate the samples and fill 1/2 of a one gallon freezer bag. Now you have your sample ready for testing:
Consistency in testing is critical for amending infields. All of our samples go to Hummel and Co.
