The peak season and when fees apply will be December through March. The soil sample fee will be based on the date the sample is logged in the system, and not the day of arrival which is usually a few days preceding log in. If you send samples during the peak season when the $4 fee applies, clients will need to pay in advance of sending samples, either by using a credit card on-line or using an escrow account on the Agronomic Division website: http://www.ncagr.gov/agronomi/ The North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Alamance County Center, is encouraging farmers and homeowners to soil test early to eliminate having to pay this soil sampling fee.  Soil sample boxes and information sheets are available at the Alamance County Cooperative Extension Office, 336-570-6740.  Please call or email mark_danieley@ncsu.edu if you have questions or need further information.
