Plant nutrient analysis is a useful management tool. While it is helpful to recognize the visual symptoms of nutrient deficiencies in plants, analyzing plant samples will help to confirm which nutrients may be causing the symptoms. When troubleshooting problem areas in a field for potential nutrient deficiencies, it is always best to collect good and bad tissue samples as well as good and bad soil samples.
This guide helps explain the data provided on our plant tissue analysis report. Basic information about each nutrient and information on visual symptoms is also included. For plant tissue sampling instructions, please see our Plant Nutrient Analysis Sampling Guide.
