The Service

The objective in INIA providing this Service is to make available a low cost and readily accessible tool to producers and technical advisors for their decision making in crop management.

Although plant tissue analysis is applicable to all species and to any plant organ, it is of particular interest for intensive plant farming productions (horticulture, deciduous fruit trees, citrus, vine, etc.). In these, there is frequent need for analysis of specific plant organs (fruits, petioles, etc.), besides the traditional foliar analysis.

The Service provides the following analysis for total nutrients:
