Plant nutrient analysis is a useful management tool. The AGVISE Plant Analysis Sampling Guide discusses the importance of plant analysis in proper crop nutrition and how to collect plant
samples. It is important to collect the correct plant part at the correct plant growth stage to ensure accurate interpretation of plant analysis results. To ensure we have enough plant material to analyze in the laboratory, please collect a minimum number of whole plants or leaves per sample as instructed in the guide. To obtain the most accurate plant analysis information, follow the instructions on plant growth stage, plant part, and minimum sample size.
