Regular testing enables growers to monitor changes in crop nutrition and diagnose suspected nutritional excesses or deficiencies.
Different lab analysis services are available to you to ensure your peace of mind:
A complete water/solution monitoring program is essential to maintaining optimum plant growth to maximize plant health and production potential. This program includes macro and micronutrients, soluble salts, pH and alkalinity, and interpretive ranges analysis.
Saturated Media Extract (SME)
A sample of the media is saturated with distilled water, allowed to equilibrate and the resulting extract drawn off. The available plant nutrients in the sample are then analyzed for pH, soluble salts, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, sodium, sulfate, zinc, iron, manganese, boron, molybdenum, nitrate‐nitrogen and ammonium nitrogen.
Plant Tissue Analysis
In-season plant tissue analysis provides a proactive management tool to monitor, adjust and maximize the potential of specific crops.
