Most of the year (generally April through November), routine NCDA&CS soil tests are provided at "no direct cost"
to N.C. residents because of funding derived from a
statewide fee on commercial fertilizer. Session Law 2009-451 Page 133
From ~ Thanksgiving through March, however, a peak-season fee of $4 is charged for the processing of all soil samples. Session Law 2013-360 Page 186
