These enzyme based test kits are non-toxic and environmentally benign.

Drought may lead to excess nitrate uptake leading to toxicity

Test for nitrate levels in dry forage to check for nitrate toxicity. Drought may cause stress in plants, encouraging excess nitrate uptake. Too much nitrate may lead to illness or even death in livestock, especially pregnant and lactating animals or young animals.

Test for nitrate levels in very dry livestock feed when samples are too dry to squeeze liquid out (dry hay, corn stalks, drought-stricken crops) to check for nitrate toxicity. This kit will detect 0 - 9000 ppm nitrate (0 - 2000 ppm nitrate-N or up to 0.9% N).  All you need is a blender or grinder to prepare your samples, a pen, marker, and a pair of scissors. No lab experience needed, kits are ready and easy to use.

Available in kit sizes to measure nitrate content of 5, 10, 25, or 50 samples
