Soil, Water and Tissue Sampling
Soil Analysis: tested for Cation exchange capacity, pH, buffer pH, organic matter content, exchangeable cations (Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium) anions (Phosphates and Sulfates), total soluble salts, and extractable micro nutrients (Boron, Copper, Zinc, Manganese and Iron).Tells the presence and concentration of 12 elements in your soil, essential for optimal plant health
Water Analysis: tested for pH, presence and concentration of Carbonate, Bicarbonate, Nitrate-nitrogen, Chloride, Sulfate-sulfur, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Boron. Total dissolved solids, hardness, electrical conductivity, Sodium absorption ratio, adjusted Sodium absorption ratio and percent Sodium. A complete interpretation and discussion of the results is presented along with the analysis.
Plant Tissue Analysis: Tells where the “lock-up” exist in the soil. We analyze tissues using near-infrared photo spectrometry, measuring the presence of the following12 elements: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Boron and Sodium. Deficiencies and in consistencies between plant tissue and soil contents explain which elements are presently “locked-up”, effectively blocking nutrient transport from the soil to the plant.
