Liquid Fertilizer Sampling Procedure

A critical requirement for getting a representative sample of a liquid fertilizer is to take the sample directly from the main body of the material, without contamination, Whenever possible, avoid taking samples from lines and valves. Listed below are the preferred points of sampling, in order of preference.

  1. Directly from the mixing vat.
  2. From the top opening of the storage or transport tank, after agitating for 15 minutes.
  3. From a delivery or recirculating line, after proper recirculation.

Please submit liquid fertilizer in a plastic container. Bottles can be obtained from the laboratory.

Your results will be emailed once completed. Turnaround time varies by analysis and season, but most sample results will be sent within 1-3 days of the samples arriving at the lab.  You will receive an invoice with the results, payable by check, credit card or through our online portal.
