Probably will get flamed for this, but for general landscape use I see no need for a bioassay. If your clients want to fork out the cash for one, then by all means.....

Now if your going to use it to make CT, then I would recommend getting one.

wallzwallz, I would have to read the MA soil ammendment law or contact the office that oversees it, every state that we have registered in has a law on the books that if a company is selling the compost bagged or in bulk, they must have test results available for the consumer, I do not know the extent of the testing but that have to have it available

Here is the contact information for MA

I believe the astrick means they are acting and not the main contact

Kiril,
You have never said anything to get you flamed......NOT!
:blob2::blob2::blob2:

Bioassay's for companies that do not know how to interpret, simply a waste of money. Those that are trying to understand, it makes sense. As your knowledge builds you will understand how simple it is and do them yourselves

Like most tests they give you a base line

Then do your traditional "soil" test (including heavy metals). Like Bill said, you can get all the information you need (biologically speaking) for this type of use from simply throwing a sample under a scope and taking a look.
