Folates in plants

I was wondering if anyone has a reliable protocol for screening plant 
tissue for folates. I would require a method that is reproducible and 
competent to screen large populations. The method would also need 
to be adequate to detect small amounts of folates. I am not so 
interested in separating the various folate moieties (eg. N5,N10 vs N5 
methyl, methenyl, formyl etc.). Rather Im just looking for an assay for 
total folates. Is TLC a good candidate?
Thanks a bunch.
