The multi-mode DCR (yellow) is primarily intended for laboratory use enabling reading probes for Compost Maturity (high CO2 and NH3), Soil CO2, Soil SLAN. It expands the usefulness of Solvita tests by reporting both color and equivalent chemistries in standard units.
For Compost Maturity:
reports CO2 Color and % CO2 in compost headspace;
reports NH3 Color, vol% NH3 and mg NH3-N volatized per sample
For Soil CO2-Burst:
reports color and mg/kg (ppm) as CO2-C evolved in 24 hrs
For Soil Labile Amino-N (SLAN):
reports color and mg/kg (ppm) as NH3-N released in 24-hrs
For Basal Soil Respiration and Grain Spoilage:
reports color and mg/kg (ppm) CO2-C on an as-is basis.
Contents: Included in the DCR package are:
Jump-drive with Solvita Reader Software

Compost Maturity Index (CMI) Calculator
30cc basic plastic scoop for CO2-Burst Protocol
