Plant Tissue Testing
Even when nutrient deficiencies cannot be corrected in-season, tissue analysis results can be helpful. Finding out that an imbalance or deficiency exists this year provides an opportunity to improve your fertilizer plan next year. Plant tissue analysis works best when specific plant parts are sampled at appropriate growth stages. We can analyze for various combinations of the following plant nutrients: N, P, K, S, Ca, Mg, Zn, CI, Cu, Fe, B, Mn, and Mo either as total concentrations or for some applications as nitrate-N or sulfate-S. Additional non-nutrient elements are available on request. Our staff can provide you with details on the available plant tissue analysis packages as well as sampling guidelines for the various crops.
