At the present time we are unable to offer Nutrient Soil Testing at CCE Albany County.
Dairy One/Agro1 Lab is still accepting soil samples for pH and nutrient testing. They recommend that the soil testing samples be mailed directly to them from the customer to minimize the amount of people who are contacting the samples. Dairy One/Agro1 Lab asks that the customer order the testing boxes from their website:

CCE offices are open to staff but remain closed to the public. Cornell Cooperative Extension Albany County Master Gardener Program has a drop box located to the right of the entrance of the Voorheesville building. Samples (plant, insect, soil pH) may be dropped off at any time. Please call the Master Gardener Hotline at 518-765-3514 for instructions, forms and additional information.
