The performance of a particular plant or an entire crop is highly dependent on the fertility of the soil it is growing in. Soil fertility is a multi-faceted analysis of elemental concentrations and biological activity. To get a complete picture of soil fertility, concentrations of carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur, as well as the differentiation of carbon into total organic (TOC) or total inorganic carbon (TIC) fractions, are relevant parameters. Improving soil health by fertilization requires accurate measurements of a wide range of soils and fertilizers. Our wide range of multi- and single-element analyzers provide individualized solutions to even the most challenging tasks.
For a better understanding of the macro and micro element cycling mechanisms through the plant-soil system, our dedicated systems for stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) provide the ideal solution for stable isotope analysis in plant material and soil samples.
