Modern agriculture demands top yields and quality yields. Additionally, you require profitable returns. In satisfying these demands, plant tissue analysis has become a valuable crop production tool. Top quality and profitable yields, unfortunately, don’t just happen. Many factors need to be considered; like adequate moisture and fertility, proper plant population adapted variety, disease and insect resistance and control. The list goes on. One of the more critical factors affecting crop yields is the nutrient status of the plant. Or the flow of nutrients to plant tissues during the growing season. Nutrient status is an “unseen” factor in plant growth, except when deficiencies become so acute that visual deficiency symptoms appear on the plant.
