How Can Plant Analysis Be a Predictive and Diagnostic Tool?
Nitrate poisoning in animals is an increasing problem in North Carolina due to the high levels of nitrogen applied to forages.
Laboratory analysis is the best way to determine a forage’s nutrient content and the potential for nitrate toxicity.
Mailing kits for samples for forage analysis are available from the NCDA Regional Agronomists and county Cooperative Extension Service centers.
