Sampling and Analysis of Soils and Plant Tissues

Plant tissue analysis As with soil analysis, sampling and sample prepara-tion of plant tissues are often the weakest steps in the testing process. The sample should represent the over-all plant population in the field, otherwise all the care-ful and usually costly analytical work is wasted.
