Hi Folks,

Have any of you permies working in Central America, South America, or Africa (especially eastern Africa), used any soil testing labs in those places?

I am specifically looking for a place that can do basic soil tests, including (most importantly) Soil Organic Matter by percentage. (aka Soil Carbon, Soil Organic Carbon. Specifically I'd like a dry weight combustion test)

Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Ethan

You should be able to find a soil carbon test. (all carbon is organic, so there isn't a test called soil organic carbon).
