|Contexte de l'analyse||Some good reasons to analyze your compost. - You compost your waste and want to know the agronomic value of your compost. - You notice that your compost does not have the usual color or that it gives off an unpleasant odor.|
|Liste des analyses réalisées||Dry matter (MS), total mineral matter, organic matter (MO) and organic carbon (by calculation), total nitrogen (Ntot), ammoniacal nitrogen (N-NH4), C / N ratio, P2O5, CaO, MgO|
The analysis of the compost allows us to know its agronomic value. It informs about the fertilization to bring to make a success of your vegetable or pleasure garden.
Dry matter (DM) : Corresponds to the percentage of product when the water is extracted
Organic matter : Comes from the degradation of microorganisms, plants, animals
Total nitrogen : Total nitrogen includes mineral (ammonia, nitrates, urea nitrogen) and organic forms. The majority of organic nitrogen must mineralize in the soil to be transformed into ammoniacal nitrogen.
Ammonia nitrogen : This form of nitrogen is readily available, it represents only a small proportion of total nitrogen unlike organic nitrogen.
C / N report : Provides information on the state of degradation of organic matter
Phosphorus : Information on available phosphorus is expressed as P2O5
Potassium : Informs about the available potassium is expressed in K2O (potash)
Calcium : Informs about the available calcium is expressed in CaO (lime)
Magnesium : Informs about the magnesium available is expressed in MgO (magnesia)
