Plants absorb nutrients from various sources including air, soil, water, and fertilizer. The levels of specific nutrients affect plant growth and overall health. Optimal nutrient levels can vary based on strain or phenotype. Therefore, it is essential to cannabis and hemp cultivators to obtain feedback on nutrient levels in plant tissue in order to maximize quality and yield.
US Cannalytics empowers cultivators with the necessary feedback to correlate quality and yield with nutrient levels in plant tissue. We use a combination of thermal conductivity and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to analyze nutrients in plant tissue and nutrient-based products.
Equipped with the latest technology in elemental analysis, US Cannalytics can analyze for the following analytes in plant tissue:
|Total Nitrogen (N)||Iron (Fe)|
|Phosphorus (P)||Manganese (Mn)|
|Potassium (K)||Boron (B)|
|Calcium (Ca)||Copper (Cu)|
|Magnesium (Mg)||Zinc (Zn)|
|Sulfur (S)||Molybdenum (Mo)|
Nitrogen is a crucial macronutrient in cannabis cultivation. Nitrogen availability may impact a plant’s ability to metabolize nutrients and produce high-yielding cannabinoid and terpene potent plants.
US Cannalytics accurately quantifies available nitrogen in plant tissue and input materials, to provide data-driven insights that effect total plant physiology.
