Everglades Soil Testing Laboratory - ESTL
The Everglades Soil Testing Laboratory (ESTL) was established in 1938 to address plant nutrient deficiency problems that were repeatedly observed in vegetable production. This lab is one of 2 University of Florida Soil Testing Labs. The other lab is in Gainesville where soil testing is done on mineral/sandy soils.
The DRIS Calculator is available to download (40KB zip). This is an Excel spreadsheet that converts sugarcane leaf nutrient concentrations into DRIS indices which provides additional information about nutrient balance.
