Modern plant analysis is used primarily as a source of information on plant nutrient status and, ultimately, as a tool to aid in nutrient management decisions. For nutrient management of crops, analytical data are used in various tests designed to:     

  • Diagnose existing nutrient problems
  • Predict nutrient problems likely to affect crop production between sampling and harvest
  • Monitor crop nutrient status for optimal crop production
  • There are also other, less common applications, such as crop-quality measurements, regional nutrient status evaluations, assessment of crops for animal and human nutrition, and environmental protection.
