Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL)
End of year holiday closure
The staff at EAL would like to thank you for your support during 2022.
We will be closed from Thursday 22 December, 2022. Our regular sample receipting will resume on Tuesday 3 January, 2023.
To enable reporting before the end of the year, please observe the December cut-off dates.
Most samples received after the above dates will be analysed ASAP. However, completed results may not be reported until the New Year.
Pilot Soil Monitoring Incentives Program
EAL is working with the Australian Government to deliver certified soil testing to farmers and land managers through the Pilot Soil Monitoring Incentives Program.
Due to climatic conditions around the country, including flooding and higher than average rainfall, Southern Cross University (SCU) and the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry have agreed to conclude the pilot Soil Monitoring Incentives Program at the end of Tranche 2 (instead of 30 June 2023). Applications are due at close of business on 23 December 2022. All soil sampling under the program must be completed by 28 February 2023. If you are sampling for Emissions Reduction Fund carbon projects please discuss your sampling completion date with SCU as an earlier deadline may apply.
More details and registration for the Program can be found on the Pilot Soil Program page.
