Pesticides are commonly used for nearly all growing applications, and routine analysis of your plants and soil can be helpful in ensuring that safe levels are being maintained. For organic growing applications, it can also be necessary to perform regular analysis to document the absence of pesticides in order to maintain organic certifications.
