On-Farm Manure Nitrogen Test KitA just-introduced kit from Farm Home Offices, Vinton, Iowa, lets you run your own test to determine nitrogen content of pit-stored liquid manure.
The do-it-yourself kit includes an acid proof plastic tube with nitrogen meter, reagents, and a densimeter for measuring phosphorous and dry matter.
"Four simple steps give you accurate results in a matter of minutes," says the manufacturer. "Nitrogen content of liquid manure varies dramatically, depending on species of animal, feed, litter material, water content, etc. When the manure pit is full and you're ready to start treating fields, you don't have time to wait for test results from a lab."
The new on-farm kit for doing the testing yourself sells for $298.
