Tissue test crops ahead of winter
Tissue testing crops is generally done in the spring, but FMC crop nutrition specialist, Chris Bond, calls for growers to consider its value this side of winter.

“Following the turbulent weather throughout this year, it’s likely we’ll see soils lacking in nutrients that we aren’t used to seeing deficiencies in,” says Chris.

“So, combining both soil sampling and tissue testing ahead of winter means growers can get the full picture of what’s in their soil and available to the plant.

“For example, magnesium is the most leachable large cation, meaning most soils will be lacking, after this year’s wet weather,” he says.
