North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services: Limited Soil Testing Services

— Written By

Until further notice, NCDA&CS 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 or email with any questions regarding soil sampling or any other essential sampling.
