HOW TO TAKE A COMPOST TEA SAMPLE

 

  • Ensure tea is well aerated. Take several small samples and mix them together.
  • Record temperature and dissolved oxygen readings, ALSO note how it smells.
  • Use a clean 1 litre plastic bottle (a water bottle is best). Put approximately 500 mL in the bottle (1/2 tea & 1/2 air) to allow oxygen for microbes during transportation.
  • Complete the sample information on the Submission Form with as many details as possible.
  • Mark each bag clearly with its sample ID.
  • Pack your samples and mark your sample pack clearly with your name and address.
  • Send samples by overnight courier or Express Post.
  • Please note that Agpath cannot guarantee timely analysis for samples arriving just prior to weekend or public holiday.
  • Report will be issued within 10 working days from receipt of sample.
