Agricultural Soils & Plant Materials

AppNote XRF1385: Agricultural Soils & Plant Materials

Background

In the agri-food sector it is important to not only study the soil composition and use of fertilizers, but also the uptake of nutrients and potentially toxic elements within the plants and crops themselves. XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) is an accepted technique in the industry. The Rigaku NEX CG meets the challenges of soil and crop analysis using indirect excitation EDXRF (Energy Dispersive XRF). Secondary targets and polarization give the operator high precision instrumentation with a simple and intuitive software design ideal to meet the demanding trace measurements as well as the measurements of major and minor elements.
