Measure of Soil Health

The Solvita Field Test is intended for measuring soil respiration in fresh soil samples not processed in a lab. The test provides insight into actual field (“basal”) microbial activity undisturbed by drying and grinding.

This do-it-yourself procedure is designed for field-moist soils measured shortly after sampling and tested for 24-hrs at room temperature. The application closely matches the USDA-NRCS Soil Health for Educators protocol for soil respiration. CO2 is read by means of a colour chart and compared to tables in the instruction manual which also provides interpretation.



Included in the test kit package are:

  • 8 Low-Level CO2 probes
  • 4 Incubation jars (polystyrene 475 ml with lids affixed with gas-tight gaskets)
  • 1 Color Chart for reading soil CO2
  • 1 Instruction Manual with interpretation guide
