Soil analysis service recommendations please

Yara/Lancrop. What they can't test for isn't worth testing for IMO.

I used to use broad spectrum tests just to make sure I was aware of any potential issues that might crop up later.

The pH of soil samples sent to Lancrop is determined with proper wet chemistry so should be as reliable as the sample you send in.

Get results emailed back within a day or two. Good service. Done with mass spectrometer so results are about as accurate as you will get.

The other alternative would be NRM or Sciantec who I used to use for feedstuff analysis and the like.
