What We Do

The Laboratory Bureau provides chemistry testing services to the regulatory and monitoring programs in the Department of Agriculture - Feed, Fertilizer, Pesticide and Agricultural Chemical Ground Water Protection.  The laboratory mission is to provide reliable and defendable resutls in a timely and economical manner.


In addition the laboratory provides testing services to the public as fee for service based on a cooperative agreement with Montana State University Agriculture Experiement Station (MSU AES.)


This arrangement enables the laboratory to reduce operating costs by sharing the facility, equipment and staff in service to separate agencies.
