Overview: The Solvita compost maturity test is a unique procedure using two test probes to simultaneously measure CO2 and NH3, the two most prominent gases indicating activity and stability of compost.

This test is widely-recognized worldwide for validating compost maturity.

Application: This easy-to-use application requires a small sample placed in the incubation jars and the results are read after 4-hrs of exposure. The basic kit offers a Solvita color chart to determine the level of activity from which a Maturity Index is calculated using guidelines provided in the manual.

Note: For more accurate readings and uploading into computer files, we recommend the Solvita Digital Color Reader (DCR).
