Chapter 9: Interpreting Soil and Tissue Tests

9.4 Summary

  • Soil and tissue tests provide valuable information about soil properties (mostly chemical properties) that affect plant growth.
  • After soil and tissue test results come back from the lab, it is important to determine what they actually mean and act upon the advice.
  • The interpretation of results from soil and tissue tests will help to make more informed, cost-effective fertiliser decisions.
