What Is the Date for Soil Sample Fees?

— Written By

UPDATE: The extended date for soil samples is December 14. Please get your samples to the NCDA office by 3:00 p.m. or to the Ag Center by December 12.


It’s that time of year again: the off-season where growers and homeowners alike begin to submit soil samples in preparation for spring.

Soil samples submitted before close of business on November 29, 2018, will not have a fee; those submitted after close of business November 29 will have a fee. Please also keep in mind the holidays. Lab gates close for Thanksgiving beginning Wednesday end of business and open Monday, November 26.

N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services has applied for a delay for the fee dates, however, that is not guaranteed at this time. If the dates do change, we will be sure to update this page!
