Solum's No Wait Nitrate Field Lab Chosen for Research Programs

Solum, Inc., a leader in advanced field measurements for commercial agriculture, today announced that its No Wait Nitrate field lab has been chosen by the National Lab for Agriculture and the Environment (NLAE) to support soil nitrate measurements across a broad set of field research programs.

The National Lab, located on the Iowa State University campus in Ames, coordinates USDA research through program units focused on Soil, Water, and Air Resources; and Agro-ecosystems Management.

Through the use of Solum's "No Wait Nitrate" field lab technology, the NLAE will be adding immediate nitrate measurements to its portfolio of soil analysis techniques. "Solum's soil measurement technology is a nice addition to our analytical capabilities," says Dr. Jerry Hatfield, Director of the NLAE. "Accurate, real-time soil nitrate measurements will provide a critical data layer across a number of our current research projects."

Since its introduction to ag retailers and consulting agronomists in Spring 2011 the "No Wait Nitrate" field lab has provided reliable soil nitrate measurements on more than 11,000 in-season, field-moist samples from cropping systems across the United States.

The field labs integrate soil processing, quality control, and immediate results into a robust analytical instrument. "We are fortunate to be working with many of the leaders in our industry and look forward to supporting the research programs at the National Lab," says Mike Preiner, President and Co-founder of Solum, Inc. "Accuracy and quality are two cornerstone commitments in our new product development. Our partnership with the National Lab is a direct reflection of our technical team's commitment to both."

Solum is also currently piloting a second product, the Readout Ready field lab, which processes and prepares field-moist soil samples for complete nutrient analysis as well as measurement of the soil's physical properties.
