Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory

Current Operational Status

As of May 11, 2020: The Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory remains open; however, we are operating at a limited capacity. All samples are currently being accepted, but we are prioritizing those associated with food and feed crop production and drinking water. Be advised that sample turn-around times for other samples may be longer than usual. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
