Soil, Plant and Pest Center

We are OPEN and we are still processing samples during COVID. 

8:00 to 4:30 central time

You can ship samples to us or drop off samples in the atrium any time (after hours and on weekends included).

During COVID, you do not necessarily need a so​il box.  If you cannot get a soil box from the local Extension County Office, please fill a sturdy quart plastic bag and write your name in permanent marker.
