Need Your Soil Tested? Back Open for Homeowners!

Soil Lab Back Open

The Soil Lab is now accepting and processing soil samples from homeowners again. The Soil Lab had stopped accepting samples that were not deemed priority or essential to agriculture for several weeks due to staffing shortages during the COVID-19 crisis. If you have soil samples ready to go,  you can now mail in your samples. From April 1 to approximately Thanksgiving, the Soil Lab does not charge a fee to process soil samples, so you will pay only for the postage to mail the boxes. Please be aware that processing times will be longer than normal as the Soil Lab is still operating with staffing shortages.

Need to Prepare Your Sample?

If you have not had a chance to prepare your soil samples yet, don’t worry. We have a dropbox with soil test kits right outside the door of the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Davie County office. The kits consist of four soil boxes and the form which must be filled out and mailed with the boxes. If you need more than four boxes in a kit, please call us at 336-753-6100 and let us know. We will be glad to get you whatever you need.

In the meantime, if you have gardening questions, or need advice on what to do with your lawn or garden, please call 336-753-6100 or email
