Turnaround Time for Routine Soil Analysis

Our current turnaround time is 6-10 business days for Routine Soil Analysis.  Since turnaround time is dependent on the volume of orders received on any given day, turnaround time will vary.  Turnaround time for Total Sorbed Metals Test and Plant Nutrient Analysis is currently 2-3 weeks.

We currently have a backlog of Particle Size Analysis orders.  Current turnaround time is 12-15 business days.  We have received several large orders that have not been logged in yet, so turnaround time may be longer before resuming to normal.  Check back here for updates.  Thank you for you patience.

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.
