Agronomic Services - Solution Analysis


Solution analysis measures plant nutrients and other parameters relevant to agricultural production in groundwater, surface water and nutrient solutions. Laboratory results and recommendations aid in management of irrigation water quality, hydroponic and fertigation systems, livestock and poultry drinking water, and aquaculture and fish pond management. Note: the Solution Analysis Laboratory does not measure any microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa, or any organic chemical contaminants, such as petroleum products, pesticides, and herbicides. 

The Agronomic Division accepts solution samples from both individual growers and research institutions and from both in-state and out-of-state clients.  Select the submission process that best describes your operation. If you are uncertain about your submission category, please contact the laboratory Section Chief or Agronomist.
