PLANTS DON'T EAT, THEY DRINK

Plants require minerals to be in a soluble form for them to be taken up from the soil solution. The water becomes the transportation system for the minerals, delivering them into the plant. Leaf analysis is the ideal way to test that the plant is receiving the right food at the right time.

 

Plant leaf analysis is an affordable diagnostic tool that every grower should utilise in managing the performance and health of their kitchen garden. It offers an insight into how your plant is performing nutritionally and as a great diagnostic intervention tool to use throughout the growing season. 

 

By conducting a number of leaf tests prior to key growth stages, ensures that your plants have complete nutrition, also allowing you to detect deficiencies or toxicities early; therefore, enabling you to tailor your liquid inputs to meet the ever changing nutritional demands of your plants. 

Plant Leaf Analysis takes the guesswork out of growing!

SOIL IS JUST DIRT, RIGHT?

No, soil is the plants gut and needs to be treated with care. It needs to be in balance with a full suite of minerals to promote good plant health and sustain biological productivity. Soil health and fertility is the condition of the soil in relation to it's potential.

Feed your soil well and it will feed you well!

Having insight into your soil is fundamental in managing your soils full potential. If you use soil to feed your family, soil testing and its accurate interpretation should be a routine part of your management.
