Soil sampling materials can be picked up at our office location during normal business hours. We have a self help table located on the 2nd floor in which you can pick-up the boxes, forms, and instructions. Forms can also be printed at the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA@CS) website. We do not mail soil samples to the NCDA&CS Laboratory. There are two soil sample forms, one for farmers (agriculture) and one for homeowners. Be sure you pick up the form that fits best for your situation.
