Hi Snafflebit,
Just curious, what was the charge for the petiole test? Did you do it a few times over the season or just once? Did you do nutritional/mineral analysis or also virus testing?
Sorry @NorCal, no thread hijack intended.

The analysis was $40 per sample, I tested three sites and it was insightful. There are varying levels of analysis and cost associated. A&L analyzes soil, water, plant and food agriculture products. I do not know of a place that would test for virus and I imagine it would be very expensive.

I do not have a need to test regularly, mainly the N was low. But if I corrected a rare deficency, I would go back a year later and test for change.

It’s been a year since we moved to the property. The vineyard and the pond really struggled. The vineyard is improved with pruning, suckering and spraying. The pond had a single aerator, the manufacturer of the air pump said it could support 5. Hopefully this addition will reduce the algea growth and create a healthier environment for the fish and turtles that call it home. BF1C200B-A9E8-4CB0-A91F-2B722A89F75B.jpeg
