Plant tissue analysis can be a valuable crop management tool. Alone, it can be used for making “in season” fertilizer recommendations for certain crops, such as tree fruits and grapes. For other crops, plant tissue analysis in combination with soil test information can be helpful when troubleshooting or diagnosing nutrient deficiencies and determining fertilizer requirements.
Properly managing manure is rapidly becoming an integral facet of farm management. A typical cow produces 120 lbs. (54 kg) of manure per day. A 100 cow herd will produce 2190 tons per year making manure management a major farm enterprise. Environmental and water concerns will continue to place greater emphasis on nutrient composition, storage, handling, and time and place of spreading.
