Soil and Plant Analysis | Elemental Analysis in Plants

The determination of macro and micronutrients in plant tissues is an important measure used to analyze plant nutritional status and to evaluate the possible need for fertilizer supplementation. The analysis of leaves provides the most information for the deficiency or excess of nutrients in plants. This procedure is often performed using spectrochemical techniques such as Flame Atomic Absorption, ICP-OES and ICP-MS.
