Plant Tissue Analysis
Plant tissue analysis provides an insight into what is happening within the plant. A snapshot of what the plant is currently doing enabling a manger to discern if there is a specific problem or if a treatment has provided a reaction. This method is very useful for managers that require very tight management control.
In addition, plant tissue analysis will detect unseen deficiencies and may confirm visual symptoms of deficiencies. Toxic levels also may be detected. Though usually used as a diagnostic tool for future correction of nutrient problems, plant tissue analysis from young plants may allow a corrective fertiliser application that same season. This analysis will provide values for the following elements: Nitrogen, Phosphate, Potassium, Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Boron, Sulphur and a Dry Matter value.
A kit will be sent to you with full instructions on how to take your plant tissue sample. A prepaid envelope is also supplied to send the plant tissue sample to the independent laboratory. The results will be emailed to you with guidance on how to interpret the results.
