Plant and Soil LAB Service
The Plant and Soil Lab is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities (ICP-OES and CHNS analyzer) that allow the high performance and advanced elemental analysis of the soil, plant tissue, fertilizers and irrigation water samples. 
Standard soil analysis: 
pH and EC, mechanical analysis, total N, organic C, CEC, plant available macro- and micronutrients (P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Zn, Mo, Cu, B), exchangeable Al (at pH 
≤ 5.0).  
Si analysis: 
Plant available Si in soil and fertilizers; total Si in plant tissues. 
Heavy metal soil analysis: 
Total and extractable Zn, Mn, Cu, Pb, Cd, Ni, Cr. 
Plant tissue analysis: 
Total nutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, B, Mo, Ni) and potentially toxic elements
(Al, Na, As, Cr, Pb, Cd).

Irrigation water analysis:
pH, EC, SAR, HCO3-, NO3-, Cl
-, Na, K, Ca, Mg, P, B, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Mo, Al, As, Cr, Ni, Pb, Cd.
