Soil Samples

Are you looking for your soil sample results? Click soil sample box or click link below: http://www.ncagr.gov/agronomi/pals The Alamance County Cooperative Extension Service offers soil testing through the NC Department of Agriculture. Simply bring a sample of your soil to be sent off in a small box, complete the soil report form, and bring it to the Extension Office located in the Agriculture Building. Please see a staff member at the Extension Office when dropping off soil samples. This service is provided FREE of charge from April–November with a cost of $4 from December–March. **PLEASE NOTE: Samples are taken on an irregular basis to the NCDA Soil Lab in Raleigh by Cooperative Extension staff. If you need faster service, send samples by USPS to: NCDA&CS Agronomic DivisionSoil Testing Section 1040 Mail Service Center Raleigh, NC  27699-1040DO NOT USE SAMPLE BOX AS A MAILER** The Agronomic Division of the N. C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services recently announced that a $4 fee per sample will be charged to soil samples that arrive at the Soil Lab in Raleigh during the peak season for soil sampling. 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 on the Agronomic Division website  or by setting up an escrow account. 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.
