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.

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
