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. Used in conjunction with a soil analysis, tissue testing can provide information on what nutrient levels are most critical.

The value of tissue testing

  • Indicates the nutritional status of plants
  • Identifies deficiencies and toxicities before the plant exhibits physical symptoms
  • Offers important info for adjusting and fine-tuning product applications
  • Ability to troubleshoot specific problem areas
  • Provides a mechanism for optimizing yield quality and efficiency 

Sampling Guide

Plant tissue analysis can be performed on leaf samples and/or petiole samples, and should be a routine part of every crop producer's nutrient management program.  Remember, a good plant tissue analysis relies on proper sample collection. Click here for sampling instructions.
