Incubation apparatus for the study of soil organic matter mineralization

Anales de Edafologia y Agrobiologia 42(9-10): 1335-1340

Incubation apparatus for the study of soil organic matter mineralization

An apparatus for incubation of soil samples in laboratory-controlled conditions of temperature and moisture was built to study the soil organic matter mineralization by means of the periodic determination of the CO2 released. This apparatus may be used for the incubation of various kinds of organic material: plant residues, peats, brown coals, manures and compost.
