Our Mission

Housed in the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station, and associated with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resources Science's Department of Soil, Water & Climate, the Soil Testing & Research Analytical Laboratory (STRAL) is an analytical services laboratory that has been providing Universities, State and Federal agencies, private industry, and the general public with quality analyses for over 50 years.  With over 100 tests available, our goal is to provide a high level of analytical precision, quality, and accuracy, with timely results, to every client, for every sample tested.
