- Can you help me interpret my leaf and soil analysis results?
Should I put manure or fertiliser in the hole when I plant my tree?
No. Start fertilising only when the tree has started to grow healthy new leaves.
Can you help me interpret my leaf and soil analysis results?
The results from leaf and soil analysis show levels of nutrients in your leaf tissue or soil. These can then be compared with critical levels established from extensive research. If your levels are above the critical levels, you don't normally need to apply much fertiliser. If your levels are below the critical levels, you need to apply fertiliser to get your levels back to the critical levels. Interpretation of the figures is a complex process and should be done by trained agronomists or consultants.
