Sampling guides

To realize reliable results, it is important to sample consistent. Please take following steps into consideration when sampling:

  • The crop needs to be in the stage of full leaf tension, sample before 09:00 am. 
  • Only sample dry leaves
  • Sample young and old leaves separately 
  • For most crops a representative sample consists out of 30 leaves. See the specific sampling guides per crop for more details or contact us.

For many crops we have specific sampling guides, you can download them below.
If the crop you are looking for is not listed below, please contact us.
For watersamples we refer to the sampling guide water samples
