Manure Sampling Reminders
Sample turnaround is five to seven working days. Results are available online, via email or standard mail. Choose from Excel, PDF or CSV files or one of the manure report options.
Dry Matter vs Wet-Basis
The AgSource manure report provides test results on an ‘as-received’ basis. This is also called a wet-basis and reflects the way manure is usually spread. The only exception is the Wisconsin report. The minor elements in the Wisconsin manure report are reported on ‘dry matter’ basis.
