Changes to Soil Sample Policy 

To keep the prices of each soil sample down to a minimum, the previous soil test policy has been revised.  Effective January 1, 2018, prices for regular soil tests will increase due to increases in lab fees and postage rates.  In addition, samples will be shipped on Tuesdays at NOON.  Samples received after noon on Tuesday will not be shipped until the following week, unless a large volume of samples are received and earlier shipment is warranted.  Customers who desire expedited shipment will be billed for actual shipping costs, plus a flat $5.00 handling fee.  Samples that are excessively wet will be dried prior shipment.  The prices per soil sample are:

     1 - 4 Samples..........$15.50 per sample

     5 - 9 Samples..........$14.50 per sample

     >10 Samples...........$14.00 per sample
