Description

Short-term drying and rewetting or rehydration creates a ‘burst’ of CO2 that is dependent on the soil biomass, and can be used to predict the mineralisation of nitrogen and phosphorus. The Solvita procedure is reliable and simple-to-use and enables fairly rapid testing of large quantities of soils at a significantly reduced cost compared to traditional lab respirometry.

The Solvita Burst test based on the Haney-Brinton Method includes 9 Soil CO2 probes, 9 475ml jars with lids and gaskets, 9 beakers and screens, one 30ml scoop and striker, colour chart #1-5 and 2019 SOP. The test procedure requires the use of the Solvita Digital Colour Reader (DCR).
