Soil testingStarting March 30, 2020, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) will only accept soil samples for testing that are deemed priority or essential to agriculture. To help limit the spread of COVID-19, the soil testing labs will be operating on a limited basis.
Agricultural soil samples that will be accepted include the following:
  • Soil diagnostic
  • Nematode diagnostic
  • Nematode pinewood
  • Nematode molecular diagnostic
  • Plant tissue
  • Solution
  • Soilless media
  • Waste samples not covered by the NCDEQ waiver on liquid animal waste
Agricultural samples that are currently in the lab will be processed as timely as possible. By taking these measures, the NCDA&CS hopes to maintain the functionality needed to meet the essential needs of NC agriculture while providing a safe work environment for employees.
Unfortunately, soil samples from the general public will not be accepted or tested at this time. If you have any questions please call our office at 828-389-6305, Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
