Summary
The project aims to develop a comprehensive process for a reasonably accurate, low-cost on-site determination of nutrient levels in liquid organic manure for all stakeholders. An important contribution will be made by physical slurry properties, chemical-analytical procedures and Vis / NIR spectroscopy. The fundamental difference to previous methods is that different approaches to a local rapid procedure should be integrated. This is realized by a smartphone app, which allows access to a large database and ensures an accurate and immediately available interpretation of the collected values.
