Since the 1950s plant sap analysis has been used as a tool to manage crop fertilization strategies and nutritional content. To produce a well-developed crop, a balanced uptake of macro- and micronutrients is required. When plants are able to take up all essential nutrients in the needed amount and in the right equilibrium they develop optimally and, as a result, are stronger and more productive. By analyzing plant sap from the leaves, these plant nutrients can be monitored. This gives growers a tool and the ability to manage their plants’ nutritional status and to improve plant vitality.
