Compost Samples

Compost 06/08/2007

Yesterday, a lady waked into the  laboratory carrying a bucket of compost.  She told us that her husband wanted to know the makeup of his compost to start the process of trying to sell it commercially.

At Midwest Laboratories, we receive a lot of compost samples for analysis.  Clients want to know the value of their compost and look at ways to raise the value.  We have clients who produce compost out of their backyards to high-end compost producers to municipalities who produce compost at the city level. The package is listed below and a formal report is provided with each analysis.

COMPOST PLUS PACKAGE $75.00
Moisture/Total Solids, Total Nitrogen, Phosphate, Potash, Sulfur, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Iron, Manganese, Copper, Zinc, pH, Total Carbon, Total Salts, C/N Ratio, Ammoniacal Nitrogen, Nitrate Nitrogen

Compost Testing

Compost Processing Gift for Christmas

New appreciation for the process! First sign of product takes 3 months.

I am starting a compost program and I am looking forward to seeing the results.  At Midwest Laboratories, compost testing has occurred for clients across the country. The process takes awhile, but once it gets going, it picks up steam and results start to come much quicker.

The current compost testing package at Midwest Laboratories will give you a good indicator as to the value your compost can give to your garden or to your clients who are buying your  product.

From my limited experience, I have a new appreciation for this industry and look forward to joining others who have made compost production a way of life personally or professionally.
