A ‘snapshot in time'
Plant tissue analysis offers a precise measurement of the nutritional status of a plant at the time the sample was taken. When tissue testing is used in conjunction with a soil analysis, it can provide information on what nutrient levels are most critical and how best to correct them.
The value of tissue testing
Plant tissue analysis can be performed on leaf samples and should be a routine part of a good nutrient management program. Remember, an accurate plant analysis relies on proper sample collection.
