Fruit Growers Laboratory, Inc.

FGL provides environmental and agricultural analytical support services to a variety of clients from all three laboratories.

Today, FGL specializes in:

– Agronomic Services

Mullins Farms used FGL’s Environmental Services to test drinking water, specifically the ‘General Mineral and Irrigation Suitability’, which included the testing of:

Alkalinity, Aggressive Index, Bicarbonate, Boron, Calcium, Carbonate, Chloride, Copper, Electrical Conductivity, Electrical Conductivity, Fluoride, Foaming Agents, Gypsum Requirement, Hydroxide, Iron, Langlier Index, Magnesium, Manganese, Nitrate, Nitrite, pH, Potassium, Sodium, Sodium Absorption Ratio, Sulfate, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, and Zinc

We were able to personally drop off our sample at one of the Fruit Growers Laboratory, INC locations, but if it’s too far or hard for you to travel there, FGL will come to your property to collect a sample of your water for an additional fee.
