NCDA&CS: Limited Soil Testing Services

— Written By and last updated by

Until further notice, N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services labs will be operating on a limited basis, accepting only samples deemed essential.

The samples deemed essential include the following: soil diagnostic (agricultural samples only), nematode diagnostic, nematode pinewood, nematode molecular diagnostic, plant tissue, solution, soilless media and waste samples not covered by the NCDEQ waiver on liquid animal waste. 

Routine soil samples are not considered essential and therefore have NO GUARANTEED turnaround time. It is suggested that if you have routine soil samples that require a specific turnaround time, they should be sent to a private lab.

Please call the office at 252-789-4370 or email lance_grimes@ncsu.edu with any questions regarding soil sampling or any other essential sampling.
