Plant Tissues Testing

SGS’s plant tissue analysis can improve your fertility management planning, protect your crops and maximize your yields.

We can perform tissue sampling from the emergence of the crop and through the first six weeks of growth – and at the fully grown, reproductive stage too. Testing at the earlier stages provides a useful indication of nutrient uptake and can help determine the cost-effectiveness of additional fertilizer applications. Tests at maturity can quantify the actual uptake of nutrients and be used to determine fertility requirements for the following season.

We use a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) to analyze our remote sensing measurements, and conduct a variety of tests including:

  • Boron
  • Calcium
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  • Molybdenum
  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Sulfur
  • Zinc
