Spring rush has started.  Be sure to allow extra time for processing!  The turnaround time for Routine Soil Analysis is currently between 10-14 business days.  Turnaround time is dependent on the volume of orders received on any given day.  As of Tuesday, May 22nd, all Routine Soil Test results from samples logged in on or before 5/4/18 have been sent.

Turnaround time for other media such as Plant Tissue or Total Sorbed Metals testing is currently 15-20 business days.

If your test results are long overdue, please contact us!  Occasionally, emailed soil test results get mistaken for Spam, and are deleted unseen by the customer.  If you think this may have happened with your test results, email the lab at soiltest@umass.edu and we can re-send your results.  Otherwise, we appreciate your patience and will do our best to get your results to you a quickly as possible.
