Nitrate test lab
Each year the District runs a nitrate test lab for producers that do pre-sidedress nitrate testing. Nitrate testing is an excellent and inexpensive way of determining the available nitrogen (N) in your soil just before sidedressing and could reduce the amount of commercial nitrogen that needs to be applied. Results for samples delivered by 3 p.m. Monday thru Thursday are generally available the following day by 1 p.m. Results for samples delivered on Friday will be available on Monday. The cost of analysis is $7.25 per sample.

Pesticide Jug Recycling
Pesticide jugs are collected three times a year for recycling. Jug recycling bags are available at the District office. The containers can be up to 2.5 gallons in size, but must be from pesticides, triple rinsed with loose labels and caps removed. Approximately 11,000 lbs. of jugs were collected in 2013 to be used to make non-food items.
