Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Elvish: (from a Norwegian site): "Dersom SOUR-verdi ønskes oppgitt relativt til innhold av organisk materiale i komposten benyttes VS=organisk tørrstoff istedet for DS i formelen. Dette krever at komposten analyseres for glødetap, VS=organisk tørrstoff."
