Soil, Water and Forage Testing

The Soil, Water and Forage Testing Laboratory Accounting processes are changing in order to 1) provide greater flexibility and options to clientele, and 2) meet Texas A&M University System and State of Texas rules on accounts receivables.

What does this mean to laboratory customers?

1) Several new options for submitting samples and making payment for services are now available to clientele through the laboratory's use of the Texas A&M University Aggie Marketplace. This site, operated by the University through TouchNet, allows for payment and ordering of goods and services in a secure seamless manner.

2) Payment options include: secure pre-payment with hardcopy submittal of our current submittal forms (no checks to write, no credit card numbers to write or give over the telephone), payment of existing invoices, and the newest option of submitting your sample information and payment (samples will still have to be mailed/shipped or dropped off at the laboratory.

3) Extension of credit forms (AG-257 External Customer Information) must be completed for customers requesting to be invoiced. 4) All invoicing (statements with a balance due) will be development, transmitted and collected in a centralized office within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, not by the laboratory.
