Accurate plant tissue analysis starts at the crop sample
While analysis of plant tissues can identify and help correct current crop deficiencies and challenges, the reactive recommendations can be improved with the proactive means of combining plant tissue and soil analysis. “Complex environmental interactions can lead to nutrient deficiencies in the plant, even when the soil may have an adequate supply for supporting the crops grown,” says Sawyer. “Sampling from plant tissue and soil at the same time gives us a comprehensive look at the nutrients and relationship between plant and soil, which allows us to make a more accurate and sustainable recommendation for applications.”
