Key tasks of the VDLUFA association in accordance with its articles are to

  • develop and uniformly apply suitable and standardized methods of analysis
  • contribute to quality assurance in the analytical sector and to
  • uniformly assess analytical results.


For this purpose, the VDLUFA association has composed the "Manual of agricultural methods of testing and analysis“ (Handbuch der landwirtschaftlichen Versuchs- und Untersuchungsmethodik) (Methods Book). Over the past 75 years, this methods book has been published in a total of 16 volumes, some of which have been published in several editions.

These methods books cover essential methods of analysis for use in agricultural chemistry and agricultural biology as well as in food and environmental analysis.

To ensure that comparable results are obtained within tight and unavoidable tolerances, independent of the testing facility or analyst, analytical testing must be performed in accordance with methods which are uniform and validated. This applies in particular when determining test parameters which are the subject of legal regulation or economic activities and also when determining measured values which serve as guidance values in a variety of sectors. The multi-volume methods books have been published  by the VDLUFA Verlag in Darmstadt since 1984. They are offered both as loose leaf booklets and pdf files and are updated as needed.

Hereafter you will find a list of VDLUFA methods which have been translated into English. The methods have been listed in the same fashion as the German version of the VDLUFA methods book.
