The Solvita Field Test is intended for measuring soil respiration in fresh soil samples not processed in a lab.

The Premium package upgrades the Basic version to include capability to weigh soils and to quantify the CO2 results by use of a Digital Colour Reader (DCR) designed for simple field use.

This version introduces capability to weigh fresh soil and to standardizing colour reading using a field DCR which reports values of CO2-output in pounds per acre (or kg per hectare). The Field (green) DCR also extends the range of Solvita probe readings up to colour 6.5 instead of the normal 5.0, enabling quantitation of field results up to 195 lb/acre CO2-C. The field Digital Colour Reader (DCR) stores up to 2000 results internally which can be conveniently uploaded with the included PC software.


Included in the test kit package are:

  • Soil CO2 detector probes (your choice of either 25 or 50)
  • 6 Incubation jars (polystyrene 475 ml with lids affixed with gas-tight gaskets)
  • Green Field Digital Color Reader (DCR) programmed for field use
  • Scale
  • USB cable and jump drive with Solvita Reader Software and drivers
