About this book

Handbook of Plant Nutrition explores the principles of plant nutrition from a historical standpoint to current knowledge of the requirements of crops for certain elements and the beneficial effects of others. Handbook of Plant Nutrition presents historical background of each plant nutrient, demonstrating functions and essentiality of plants. With tabulated data used to correlate information to nutritional needs, it includes diagnosis of the nutritional status of plants through assessment of plant appearance and composition. It discusses the value of soil tests for evaluating the nutritional status of plants. The text also examines fertilizers that can be applied to remedy nutritional deficiencies in plants.
