About this book
Examines research to present an overview of inorganic nitrogen uptake and metabolism in plant life and crop production. This title focuses on physiology and adaptive mechanisms, molecular genetics, and applied aspects. It is useful as a classroom aid for academics working in plant physiology and agronomy.
