SGS understands how analysis plays a critical role in greenhouse management. Whether balancing nutrients in water/solution, identifying deficiencies in plant tissue, or monitoring potential plant pathogens, SGS can assist greenhouse operators by providing the measurements necessary for productivity.

Water & Nutrient Solution Analysis Our Water Complete package aids in the development of customized mixes to enhance crop development, whereas our Solution Complete package provides confirmation of the mixed fertigated water.

Media Analysis Analysis of the growing media is a critical step in developing a robust fertility program for the target crop.

Plant Tissue Analysis Plant tissue analysis is a tool to monitor nutrition and diagnose deficiencies.
