Sample preparation - hot water extraction:
Prepare a fine powder of the sample and dry at 105 °C. Mix 5 g with 100 ml water for analysis and boil for
30 minutes on a hot plate. Allow to cool, transfer the suspension to a 200-ml volumetric flask and make up to the mark with water for analysis. Mix well, filter through a paper filter and then use as sample for the determination of water-soluble nitrate.
Determine with the above mentioned test kits.
Nitrate content in % = analysis value in mg/l NO3 x 0.004
