Abstract A simple, rapid and inexpensive method to determine microbial activity potentials, based on ammonification of arginine, was developed and tested on bacterial cultures and soil samples. The results are highly reproducible and correlate well with respiratory activities. Ammonification starts immediately after the addition of arginine and is linear for more than l h. Both properties show that physiological status and number of microorganisms remain stable during the assay.
