often do not have the resources to test a large number of plants or portions of plants. It is therefore crucial that sampling procedures are designed to collect the most representative samples within a plot or nursery. Furthermore, because nutrient

nutrient analyses are employed through tissue-sampling methods, which are contingent on sampling location, plant part selected, and the stage of growth. Specific sampling protocols may be dependent on the crop type and purpose ( Munson and Nelson, 1990
