Why Use Plant Tissue Testing?
Plant tissue analysis is a diagnostic tool that has been used for many years. It is based on the concept that, up to a certain critical point, the content of a nutrient in plant tissue is directly related to yield. In addition, nutrient concentrations in plants are directly related to the quantity of that nutrient in the soil that is available or that is in some way limited to the plant. Therefore, plant tissue analysis and soil testing go hand in hand to get a before and after view of what is available for your plant.
Sap Testing Is Here!
While tissue testing is still a viable tool for growers to glimpse into the nutrition of their plant, sap analysis is a more power and accurate representation of what is really available to your plants.
Combine Soil and Tissue Testing
We recommend combining soil and sap testing for optimum plant nutrition management. However, there are still options for those who prefer the more familiar tissue analysis. By combining soil tests and tissue tests, you can get a good idea of what nutrients you plant has absorbed over the season, and what is still available to be uptaken by the roots. This can help guide broad decision making in terms of crop amendments and soil management.
