TP&S Lab – 77 Years of Doing it Right.

TPSL 77 Years of Doing it Right!

TPSL 77 Years of Doing it Right!

Texas Plant and Soil Lab has been testing soil since 1938, using a superior form of extraction method that mimics the way plant’s roots take up nutrients from the soil.
Along the way, prominent TP&S Lab owner K. Chandler set the stage for our plant nutrition monitoring program, “Ask the Plant”. And since the late 50’s / early 60’s, TP&S Lab has been pioneering and improving plant-sap testing from leaf and petioles.

Other labs don’t want to use these superior methods because they are too expensive and can’t be automated. Other labs want to maximize profits with an automatable test that is a gateway into selling other products, most commonly: fertilizer.

So for 77 years now, TP&S Lab has built up proprietary nutritional guidelines based upon the empirical results of our recommendations derived from our testing data. And for 77 years now, TP&S Lab has seen our crop success grow and grow, season after season, until today: where we find ourselves saving family farms, curing diseased and abandoned land, and growing standards-busting crops in record-setting yields.

Now, all of the sudden, other labs want to know our secret to growing superior crops at record-breaking volumes. They want to know what our special ingredient is. They want to know where to get some of our fairy dust.

Unfortunately, there is no magic trick. There is no latest, greatest technological break-through. There is no secret sauce.

There is only 77 years of hard work. 77 years of doing things the harder way. Not because it’s more profitable. Not because it’s popular. But because it’s right. And it’s worth doing.

And because the results speak for themselves.

If you’re tired of just getting by. If you’re tired of all of your effort turning into a crap-shoot at the end of the season. If you’re tired of being told your soil has plenty of everything but you can’t seem to get what you need. If you would like to grow the best crops you have have grown in the whole entire history of your farm. Call Texas Plant and Soil Lab at 956-383-0739.

Soil Testing at Texas Plant and Soil Lab

Texas Plant and Soil Lab has been testing soil for farmers and growers since 1938.

And while technology advances and some tools become fancier and quicker, the process of testing soil remains largely the same. And while our nutritional standards are updated and refined each year based off last seasons success and ongoing environmental changes, the motivation remains the same, even after all these decades: to serve the grower, to enable farmers to grow greater yields of healthier crops, and to do so utilizing less fertilizer, and less water, and healthier replenishment to the soil.

Not because it’s “sustainable” or “traditional” or “organic”; But because it makes good sense, no matter what you call it.

Don’t buy-in to these news stories that say that we only have 60 years of farm soil left, or that “just getting by” is all today’s farmers can hope for.

At Texas Plant and Soil Lab we’re saving family farms, we’re reclaiming diseased land and we’re growing record setting crops, all around the world.
