Is soil sampling a normal part of your agricultural business?
Do you perform grid sampling as a part of your soil testing plan?
If you live in the State of Nebraska, a very important hearing will be held February 7, 2011.
The current law as stated would require all soil samplers to call the Nebraska Diggers Hotline each time a soil sample is collected. This process would require a lot of phone calls and a lot of extra time added to the current sampling process.
Diggers Hotline has a purpose, a person should proceed cautiously when digging to insure that underground phone lines or gas lines are not punctured.
Should samplers sampling soil at 6-12 inches be held to the same legislation? I think some additional amendments can be made for select type of sampling.
