Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory

About the Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory

The Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory provides a wide range of testing programs for soils, water, plants, biosolids and other agricultural materials.

The Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory is part of The Pennsylvania State University College of Agricultural Sciences. Our goal is to promote practical, innovative, and affordable solutions to existing and emergent issues related to nutrient management and environmental quality.

We provide analytical testing and research-based recommendations to support sustainable resource management decisions. The lab offers comprehensive analyses of soil, water, plant tissue, manure, compost, and other agricultural materials. The fee-based programs are available to all University faculty and staff as well as the general public.

Our Lab will be closed December 23 through January 1st for the holiday season. We will reopen on January 2. Please do not send time-sensitive samples to the lab during this time.
