The Soil Testing Lab now has available new Self-Mailer Shipping Cartons. They will hold from 1 to 4 soil sample boxes, and were designed to make it simpler to mail samples to the Soil Testing Laboratory. The postage for these self-mailers is $3.00, whether one or four samples are being mailed. These cartons are now available at all Virginia Cooperative Extension offices.
