NUTRIENT ANALYSIS PROCEDURES FOR ARTIFICIAL SUBSTRATES AND PLANT TISSUE

Gerald E. Wilcox, Paul R. Adler
The H2O2-HClO4 plant tissue digestion procedure meets the requirement of 98–100% nutrient recovery and takes only 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

Saturated medium extract procedure is used for our greenhouse growth media analysis. With the saturation procedure no preliminary handling or preparation of the sample is necessary so the samples can be processed and analyzed immediately. The saturation procedure also acts as an automatic compensator for differences in bulk density.
