! comprehensive coverage of each of the 14 essential mineral nutrients required by plants. Its focus is different from other books on plant nutrition, in that there is a strong practical bent towards understanding and managing the efficiency of applied nutrient use. !very useful coverage of each of the mineral nutrients ! contains many figures and tables of experimental data involving a wide range of soil and plant measurements. The content is fully referenced, with a list of references at the end of each chapter, and this will be very useful for those involved in research, teaching and extension work alike. The majority of the research data are the results of the author's own work. !easy to read and is broken up by many black and white photographs, together with tables and figures containing experimental data. --P.
