CERTIFIED LABS

image5

The following member labs have met the qualifications for certification by ALTA on Feb. 2, 2020.  


The Agricultural Laboratory Testing Association (ALTA) strives to ensure that member labs always provide their clients with accurate, reliable and consistent data.  This is accomplished through lab participation in the ALTA-Lab Accreditation Program (LAP), which utilizes soil analyses data developed through the Agricultural Lab Proficiency (ALP) Program, a national testing program.  Members submit their data to the ALTA-LAP program in three four-month cycles each year.  


Labs must meet certain qualification standards each cycle to remain certified.  The rules of certification may be found by clicking on the “Soil Analysis” section on this site’s header bar.
