Fees for service were increased recently in order to keep up with the cost of laboratory operations. This increase allows us to continue to provide accurate and timely test results, as well as provide for the maintenance and upkeep of analytical equipment.
Current fees are listed on our Services page. Additionally, order forms have been updated to include the new pricing. New order forms can be downloaded from the Ordering Information page.
Your patronage is greatly appreciated. We look forward to providing for your future nutrient management and soil health needs.
