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.
