With the late harvest and samplers trying to get into fields while its dry, clients are scrambling during the month of November to get their soil tested to determine the current state of their ground.
At Midwest Laboratories research and development continues all the time to help facilitate the process of analyzing soils and producing results in a timely manner. The turnaround time for a volume this large is three to four days. 80% of the samples received yesterday will be reported out on Thursday, November 19, 2009 with the remaining soils being reported out on Friday, November 20, 2009.
Midwest Laboratories received over 20,000 soil samples today. With the late harvest and shortened soil sample season, numbers like these could be expected. A large number of sample bags, boxes and return shipping labels have been sent out this fall. More samples are expected to come in over the next few weeks.
