This publication provides general information on how to best utilize plant tissue analysis. We combine information gained from plant and soil analysis data to better our decisions for soil and plant nutrients.
Plant tissue nutrient analysis has been used for decades to diagnose plant health issues. And, identify visual nutrient deficiencies, find “hidden hunger,” and to evaluate the effectiveness of fertilizer materials and soil amendments. While soil nutrient analysis is well accepted as a foundational source of information. When making fertilizer and soil amendment recommendations, plant tissue analysis has a much more limited acceptance.
For additional information about taking plant tissue samples and submission to Midwest Laboratories refer to our “Sampling Guide for Plant Tissue Analysis.” This resource can be found by following this link: Sampling Guide for Plant Tissue.
