Sampling instructions

1. Collect approximately one pint of lightly packed material. Wash off sample if it has any visible dust or fertilizer residue.

2. Paper envelopes work best for mailing samples. Do not put samples in a plastic bag.

3. Label with sample ID (i.e. Bob's kale), type of test, and order number (found in order confirmation email).

4. Purchase your test on our website and send sample to Alluvial Soil Lab, 201 E Center St, Ste 112 #3083, Anaheim, CA 92805 using any postal carrier of your choice.

*Always wear gloves, mask, or other necessary PPE while collecting samples from potentially contaminated soils.

Plant tissue analysis is a vital diagnostic tool used to assess the nutritional status and overall health of plants. This comprehensive analysis evaluates the presence and concentration of essential nutrients crucial for optimal plant growth and development. Key parameters tested in plant tissue analysis include:

  • Nitrogen: Essential for protein synthesis, leaf development, and overall plant growth.
  • Sulfur: Important for protein formation, enzyme activity, and chlorophyll production.
  • Phosphorus: Crucial for energy transfer, root development, and flowering.
  • Potassium: Regulates water uptake, improves disease resistance, and enhances fruit quality.
  • Magnesium: Component of chlorophyll, essential for photosynthesis and enzyme activation.
  • Calcium: Enhances cell wall structure, aids in nutrient transport, and mitigates physiological disorders.
  • Sodium: Indicates soil salinity issues, affecting water balance and nutrient uptake.
  • Iron: Essential for chlorophyll synthesis, electron transfer, and enzyme functions.
  • Manganese: Facilitates photosynthesis, enzyme activation, and nitrogen metabolism.
  • Copper: Necessary for enzyme activity, photosynthesis, and reproductive growth.
  • Boron: Critical for cell wall formation, pollen germination, and sugar transport.
  • Zinc: Involved in enzyme activation, hormone regulation, and carbohydrate metabolism.

By analyzing these elements, plant tissue analysis provides valuable insights into nutrient deficiencies, imbalances, or excesses, guiding growers and agronomists in optimizing fertilizer regimes, soil management practices, and overall crop health. This data-driven approach aids in enhancing crop yield, quality, and sustainability.
