The Food and Agriculture team wants to let you know that we are still working and available to provide guidance and help during this busy season.  While face-to-face meetings and in-person programming have been curtailed, we are still working every day to help your season be a successful one. Watch for our newsletter or visit our website to get updates on upcoming programs and newly available resources.
 

Update (06/25/21):

The soil testing lab is now open for mail-in samples only.

 Due to COVID-19 the lab will only be accepting samples by mail until further notice. Your safety and the safety of our students, faculty and staff are our highest priority. Please do NOT drop off a sample to the Durham campus. For more information, and to access our soil testing forms please visit the Soil Testing Services webpage here. Our staff continues to work remotely. For questions, please email soil.testing@unh.edu or leave a  message for Shyloh Favreau at 603-862-3200.

Please mail all samples to:

UNH Cooperative Extension Soil Lab

Spaulding Hall - Room G28

38 Academic Way

Durham, NH 03824

 

The UNH Plant Diagnostic Lab will not be accepting samples as of June 1, 2021

As of June 1, 2021, all NH plant diagnostic samples should be sent directly to the University of Maine Plant Disease Diagnostics Lab, and not to the UNH Plant Diagnostic Lab. Please visit the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Plant Disease Diagnostic Lab website for submission forms and contact information. (or visit unhpdl.org for direct links to the Maine lab, and the downloadable form)
 
Samples submitted to the UNH-PDL after June 1 cannot be processed (and cannot be forwarded to UMaine due to decomposition and loss of quality of the sample in transit).  Submitters will be requested to send new samples to the UMaine Lab.
This temporary change is necessary due to the retirement of the UNH Plant Health Specialist/Director of the UNH Plant Diagnostic Lab (Cheryl Smith). We are in the process of filling this vacancy.  
 
We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time of transition, and appreciate your support for UNH Cooperative Extension.
