Plant Tissue Testing Program

  • Program Highlights
    • Plant tissue analysis offers a precise measurement of the nutritional status of a plant at the time the sample was collected; a snapshot in time. This information can be used to determine if a specific nutrient is lacking even before a deficiency symptom becomes visibly noticeable. It also provides information on the relative health of the plant and interrelationships between all essential plant nutrients.
    • When tissue testing is used in conjunction with a soil analysis, it better illustrates critical nutrient levels and indicates how best to improve them.
    • Because a tissue analysis is not predictive, it is suggested to collect multiple samples throughout the growing season.
