Herbage testing is a tool that complements soil testing.
Plants growing in nutrient-deficient soils show it in the way that they grow. Yellowing or dry edges, stunted roots, or deformed fruit could be due to nutrient deficiencies. However, sometimes physical conditions can be confusing, as it takes an experienced person to determine whether a plant is suffering from a deficiency or toxicity! Herbage analysis gives assurance to visual indicators.
It is important to remember that while a herbage test can tell you what nutrients are or are not being taken up by a plant, it does not tell you why.
AB Lime consultants are able to take herbage samples, send them away and help interpret the results for you. We use Hills Laboratories to analyse herbage samples.Book your herbage testing
