Two physical testing labs serving the landscape, golf and sports turf industries are joining together to form Turf & Soil Diagnostics.   Effective Jan. 1, Hummel & Co. Laboratory of New York and Turf Diagnostics & Design of Kansas will operate under the Turf & Soil Diagnostics banner.

Sam Ferro, who will be president of the newly joined company, says “the fusion of the two companies will allow us to bring the best of both labs into each location to form a powerhouse laboratory network. The testing expertise and experience that we are bringing together is unparalleled in our industry.”

Turf & Soil Diagnostics expects this union to improve customer confidence and widen its customer base.  The laboratories will work together on test procedures, quality control programs and customer service. As the only lab with multiple locations, the company will offer unmatched reach and service capabilities.
