Carbon Sequestration Testing

Carbon Sequestration TestingCarbon Sequestration Testing by Soiltest Farm Consultants

If your research group needs reliable carbon sequestration testing, our lab is fully capable of assisting you with your research and providing you with data that reveals the amount of carbon in soil samples. In addition to determining the amount of carbon in soil samples, we can also conduct analytical work on nitrogen fractionation, and the total nitrogen and organic matter in these samples.

Understanding Carbon Sequestration

The sequestration of carbon has the potential to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions from large industrial sources, including coal and gas fired plants. It is a field of research dealing with plants and the soils ability to store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by pulling it out of the air and sequestering it in a stable state.

Soiltest has facilitated carbon sequestration research in agro-ecosystems as well as forest ecosystems. By partnering with Soiltest you can be assured of accurate and certified methodology in the analysis of total carbon in your soil, litter, or plant samples. Our carbon sequestration testing methods are proven, so you can be confident of the amount of carbon in soil.

Nitrogen analysis as well as Carbon to Nitrogen ratio calculation is another service offered at Soiltest. The C:N ratio is an important tool when evaluating ecosystem dynamics, nitrogen cycling and carbon cycling and microbial activity.

Some of Our Other Services – Beyond Carbon and Sequestration

At Soiltest, we offer a full line of soil testing solutions that go far beyond carbon. Some of these services are outlined below:

  • Compost Testing – If compost is a byproduct of your business, you can use it on-site or consider selling it to a third party. The US Composting Council outlines the standards for compost, and these parameters must be followed.
  • Feed & Forage Testing – If you need to determine the relative feed value of your forage, like alfalfa and timothy, we offer a comprehensive forage testing schedule. Our strict daily quality assurance program guarantees that you have a precise indicator of your hay and forage’s quality and value.
