Why does a SAP Test achieve?

Shows the level of nutrients in the sap flow of a plant that are available for metabolism.
Determines the effect of management and environmental influences on nutrient levels.
Monitors the effect of and response to fertiliser applications.
Ensures deficiencies are detected before crop loss occurs.
Ensures plant nutrients levels are optimal for maximum fruit growth and quality.
Fills fruit evenly to improve internal quality by maintaining optimal K levels.
Reduces effects of adverse weather on fruit by detecting temporary deficiencies.

SAP Test Plant Sampling Guide
Our comprehensive plant sampling guide is intended to help ensure that the correct plant part and number of leaves required for a SAP test are being collected and sent to our laboratory for testing. This will allow for faster, more accurate testing of your sample, which in turn leads to you receiving your recommendation in the shortest turnaround time.
