A rapid technique for drying organic soil horizons using a microwave oven

A rapid technique for drying organic soil horizons using a microwave oven

Soil Science 154(5): 420-425

A procedure was developed for rapidly drying organic soil horizons in a microwave oven. Dry weights consistent with values obtained by conventional drying methods were obtained by drying these materials for 20 to 30 minutes at Medium (490 W) power.
