Package Analysis Locations Available
A91-0 Comprehensive Analysis CA
Salinity, sodium, sodium adsorption ratio (SAR), chloride, boron, total exchangeable cations (TEC), pH, dilute acid extractable iron, moisture content, dry bulk density, as-received bulk density, half saturation percentage, organic matter as a percent of dry weight, organic in lbs. per cu. yd., estimated carbon nitrogen ratio (C/N ratio), Total-N, NO3-N, NH4-N, phosphorus as P and P2O5, potassium as K and K2O, calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc, manganese, iron, and particle sizes.
  • Appropriate for composted greenwaste, manures, biosolids and sludge
  • Determine suitability for use as a soil amendment / soil blend component
  • Provides use rate in cu. yds. per 1000 sq. ft., per acre, or on a volume basis
  • Gives immediately available nutrients and total nutrients that will become available as the material decomposes. Nutrient levels given as lbs. or ozs. per cu. yd. and lbs. per ton.
A09-1 Partial Organic Analysis CA
Salinity, sodium, sodium adsorption ratio (SAR), boron, total exchangeable cations (TEC), pH, dilute acid extractable iron, moisture content, dry bulk density, as-received bulk density, half saturation percentage, organic matter as a percent of dry weight, organic in lbs. per cu. yd., estimated carbon nitrogen ratio (C/N ratio), Total-N, NO3-N, NH4-N, immediately available phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc, manganese, iron, and particle sizes.
  • Appropriate for Composted Greenwaste, manures, biosolids and sludge
  • Provides most of the same information as A91-1 including immediately available major and minor nutrients but NOT total.
A07 Partial Organic Analysis CA
Salinity, pH, dilute acid extractable iron, moisture content, dry bulk density, as-received bulk density, half saturation percentage, organic matter as a percent of dry weight, organic in lbs. per cu. yd., Total N, estimated carbon nitrogen ratio (C/N ratio), and particle sizes.
  • Appropriate for raw or composted wood shavings and bark as well as other organic materials with minimal nutrient contribution.
  • Determine suitability for use as a soil amendment / soil blend component.
