Crop Tissue Testing

Crop tissue analysis is becoming a routine practice in every tillage farmer’s nutrient management programme as a way to accurately measure a crop’s health and ultimately optimise production. A soil test will indicate what nutrients are available to a growing crop,  but a crop tissue analysis will identify a “hidden-hunger”.

Routine analysis of a growing crop can indicate the current nutrient status of the crop, predict potential deficiencies and validate the effectiveness of existing fertiliser programmes.

An IAS Crop Tissue Scan includes:

  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Sulphur
  • Calcium
  • Manganese
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Sodium
  • Boron
  • Iron
  • Aluminium

Once a suitable sample is received, IAS will provide a swift turnaround of results, therefore allowing you to carry out any necessary fertiliser or trace element applications in a timely manner.
