AGVISE Laboratories now provides a fast and convenient way to test your water supply used for pesticide application. This “Spray Water Analysis” includes calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, pH, hardness, salt and SAR (Sodium Adsorption Ratio). This test information is very helpful for determining how much AMS (ammonium sulfate) is required to overcome the antagonism effects of the cations in your spray water. You will want to test your water source and maybe the water source of your best customers who buy chemical from you. This information can help avoid a lot of problems through the spraying season.
Just give us a call and we will send you out a “spray water kit.” Each kit contains a water collection vial, sample information sheet and a prestamped mailing envelope. You just collect the water sample, put the vial in the prestamped envelope and drop the sample in the mail (your account will be billed $15.00 for each kit as they are sent out to you). In most cases, the water samples are tested and reported to you the same day they arrive at the laboratory. The test results are e-mailed back to you, so you have information on your water source right away! If you have any questions, please give us a call.
