Improved analysis of solid manures and slurries

Information from a project showing that Near Infra-red Reflectance Spectrometry(NIRS) can provide low cost, rapid and reliable analysis of solid manures and slurries.

Year of Publication2011

The variability and increasing cost of manufactured fertiliser makes it worthwhile analysing nutrient content of representative samples of solid manures and slurries.  This is a summary of a three-year collaborative Defra LINK project with sixteen research and industry partners has shown that Near Infra-red Reflectance Spectrometry (NIRS) can provide low cost, rapid and reliable analysis of solid manures and slurries.
