The Manure (Ammonia) Kit is specially adapted to measure volatile ammonia (NH3) content of compost or manure.
It can be used for semi-solid samples in a manner similar to the compost test kit, and-in situ to reveal emissions of ammonia from bedding packs.
In poultry houses it is proven to measure volatisation potential from surface litter. The Solvita ammonia probe detects NH3 in a range from 100 – 30,000 ppm and may be read from 1-24 hrs.
It is useful for estimating losses of nitrogen, and safety conditions in barns from accumulated manure.
The kit includes 6 NH3 detectors, 6 glass test jars, colour chart and manual.
A Digital Colour Reader is required for digital qualitative readings.
