Vermont Agriculture and Environmental Laboratory (VAEL)

The Vermont Agricultural & Environmental Laboratory (VAEL) is the result of the merger in July 2015 of the DEC and AAFM laboratories.  VAEL provides analytical services to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (AAFM), the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) and, by contract, with other organizations.  

VAEL’s governance board was created to equally represent the laboratory testing needs of the DEC and AAFM.
