The Tea Bag Index – Summary

The Tea Bag Index is a novel method to measure decomposition rate in soil. Decomposition (the breakdown of organic material into its smaller constituents) is an important process for the release of nutrients into soil for plants to use. Therefore gaining a better understanding of decomposition in soil will be of great value to gardeners in the UK. The method is simple, you’ll be posted some tea bags which you will bury in your garden. After three months I’ll ask you to dig them up and send them back to me.

Your help will be greatly appreciated!
