$4 Fee for Soil Tests December 1 – March 31
The 2013 Appropriations Act passed by the General Assembly approved a $4 fee for soil samples analyzed by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services for the period from December 1 – March 31. The fee is an attempt to lessen the backlog associated with the busy season when the lab is routinely inundated with tens of thousands of samples. The rest of the year – April through November – NCDA&CS will continue to analyze soil samples without a fee.
