Macro- and Micro-Nutrients

Analysis Type: Laboratory
Analysis Parameters: Mineral Composition
Measures: Amount of Essential Elements Present
Accuracy: Very Accurate
Item number: SA-I-02

 

Service description

The purpose of this test is to gain a "dietary overview" of the plant's nutritional palette. In other words, we want to see what kind of raw materials the soil is "bringing to the table"; which nutrients are available for uptake and utilization. Without this information, it can be difficult to understand what measures to take when a plant is showing signs of deficiency.

Plant Tissue Testing

Leaf Tissue Nutrient Content

Analysis Type: Laboratory
Analysis Parameters: Foliar Mineral Composition
Measures: Foliar nutrient composition
Accuracy: Very Accurate
Item number: FA-I-01

 

Service description

Why is it necessary to test the leaves, when you already know what is in the soil? That's a good question. . . The reason is that the nutrients in the soil may not be making it into the plant tissues. Perhaps this is due to a pathological problem, or perhaps the nutrients are simply not available in a form that the plant can use. To put that in a human perspective, coffee has many forms (decaf, caffeinated, with sugar or without, with cream and sugar, etc.). Some people don't tolerate coffee at all, while others can only drink it in a special form. In the same way, the same basic nutrient, Nitrogen, for example, may be plentiful in the soil, but of no use to the plant.
