Leaf Tissue Analysis–This analysis is a laboratory procedure which determines the mineral content of a plant. It will reveal deficiencies and excesses so that an appropriate foliar spray can be designed to supply nutrients immediately to the plant. The plant can absorb nutrients directly through its leaf stomata. Foliar feeding is almost like giving an I.V. solution to the plant! Click here to order.
Foliar feeding doesn’t take the place of soil balancing, but it can be a short-term solution while you are working on improving your soil. Even after balancing the soil, foliar feeding can be used to maximize quality food production. Done correctly, foliar feeding can improve the nutrient density, flavor and shelf life of your crops. By giving the plants the nutrition they need, disease problems decrease and crop yields increase.
A comprehensive leaf tissue analysis includes Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Sulfur, Phosphorus, Boron, Iron, Manganese, Copper, Zinc and Nitrogen. Once plant nutrient deficiencies have been determined, a foliar spray recipe is custom formulated. These nutrient sprays are very easy to apply with an inexpensive sprayer.
If you would like to have plant tissue analyses performed, you’ll need to order an analysis for each plant variety because their needs will differ. The initial leaf tissue analysis with interpretation and specific recommendations for a foliar spray mix is $100. Additional leaf tissue analyses ordered at the same time are $75 each. Click here to order. You’ll be sent a leaf tissue analysis worksheet (with instructions) to fill out and send to the lab with your leaf tissue samples. Dr. Bogs will interpret the raw lab numbers and send you recommendations for foliar feeding. Soon you’ll have happy plants and the best food ever! Click here to order.

Here’s a testimonial— Our citrus trees produced fruit but the leaves were mottled and the fruit of mixed quality. We used some citrus fertilizer which helped. But after we received your soil analysis and followed your instructions the change, particularly in the citrus which received a more rapidly effective foliar spray, was fantastic. The citrus is flourishing. The second flush of fruit is bigger, more plentiful and the leaves and new growth vibrant. Regards, Helen
Nutritional Content Analysis–This type of plant tissue analysis is used to check the nutritional content of your final food product (i.e. beet roots, lettuce leaves, carrot roots, apples) and compared to USDA Food Nutrient Database values. See more examples of these comparisons in Dr. Bogs’ book–Beyond Organic…Growing for Maximum Nutrition and Flavor. Click here to order book.
