Editor's note
The following abstract describes a publication that is intended as a downloadable PDF. Please see the link to the PDF file on this page.


It is preferable to know the nutrient content of your compost material which you plan to apply. Based on the compost analysis you can decrease the amount of fertilizer needed. After collecting a compost sample submit directly to the Columbia lab. Each sample submitted to our lab should be accompanied by a sample information form. When submitting a sample to the lab the sample information form should be filled out accurately and completely.
