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 $8.00 per sample.
The cost will be $25 – $50 (depending on conditions) per acre with a $40 mobilization fee.
Pesticide Jug Recycling
Pesticide jugs will be collected from May 1st thru October 15th for recycling. Please call to make an appointment for a drop off time. Jug recycling bags are available at the District office. The containers can be up to 55 gallons in size, but must be from pesticides, (no dairy cleaner or DEF jugs) triple rinsed with loose labels and caps removed. Jugs collected will be used to make non-food items.
