Our soil testing services are temporarily suspended due to our facilities being closed under “New York State on Pause” executive order. We recommend using a Cornell University partner lab., Dairy One https://dairyone.com/ that is open and accepting soil samples by mail. You will have results back to you within 10-14 days and they will provide Cornell recommendations.
