Grain analysis - to benchmark nutrient levels

Grain analysis is an increasingly useful analytical tool, testing the nutrient content of harvested as a basis for future nutrient management decisions.

Why use grain analysis?

Making nutrient decisions based on analysis of harveted grain is becoming an increasingly useful management tool.

Testing the nutrient content of harvested grain provides you with:

  • Accurate measurement off nutrient take-off (as opposed to relying on standard RB209 book values for P&K).
  • The opportunity to identify any nutrient deficiencies in the harvested crop that may have impacted upon its success (e.g. N:S ratio and critical P levels).
  • Information to incorporate into future nutrient planning for following crops (e.g. micronutrient fortification and improved management of future soil fertility by maintaining P&K levels).

All results are interpreted against Yara Analytical long-term UK grain dataset allowing you to benchmark your samples against standard UK practice.

Available for both cereals and oilseed.

What analysis are available ?

Grain N:S ratio

This is the basic analysis, useful for benchmarking nitrogen and sulphur management.

N, S, NS ratio

Grain broad spectrum 

This gives the nutrient levels for all twelve plant nutrients and ensures no deficiency is missed.

N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, B, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Zn
