    A soil test is a valuable test to determine the quality of your soil.

    Your County Extension Office can help you with a soil test for small fee.

    There can be different reasons for poor results with your plants, pest, disease, and environmental causes. Peas are a cool weather crop and if the weather is too warm, they will not generally do well.
