1 WHEN AND HOW Corn Tissue Sampling After the grower, farm, field and plant tissue work order have been created within the Nutra-Links Crop Intelligence software; 1. Print the field s work order and take it to the field. 2. Select plants that are themselves representative of the field and are from representative areas of the field itself. 3. Be sure to use a clean tissue sampling bag to prevent skewing the sample results. a. A plastic pail or a paper bag work best. Never use a metal container to gather the sample as the metal may contaminate the sample. 4. Clean your hands before taking a sample to make sure you are not transferring contaminates to the plant. 5. Collect approximately one pint of lightly packed plant tissue. A pair of scissors is helpful for the process. Do not include roots. 6. Clean the sample to remove soil, fertilizer, dust, or spray residue. A dry brush works well. For stubborn residues, wipe the samples with a damp cloth or wash the samples with distilled or deionized water. Do not prolong the washing. Air-dry the samples if wet. 7. Place the cleaned plant tissue collected from one plant into one clean paper sampling bag. 8. At the office, update the work order. Make sure Sample ID and crop development stage have been accurately recorded and updated in the online software. Once completed, submit sample work order to lab, and print the submittal form. 9. Pack and ship samples and their corresponding submittal forms to the lab as early in the day as possible. Multiple sample bags can be packed in a shipping box. All samples must have the submittal form included when shipped.

2 TIPS FOR SUCCESS Choose representative plants to sample. Collect approximately one pint of lightly packed plant tissue. Prevent contamination by cleaning your hands before taking tissue samples and ensuring the plant tissue is clean before packing. Do not include roots with samples. Never place fresh samples in a plastic bag as they will mold. Pack and ship with the submittal form to lab as early in the day as possible. SAMPLING GUIDELINES Seedling stage less than 12 high. Sample whole plant from 1/2 above soil surface. Collect 15 plants. Prior to tasseling. Sample the most recently unfurled leaf below the whorl. Collect 15 leaves. Silking. Sample the leaf below the dominate ear. Collect 15 leaves.
