Plant Nutrition Manual

Like all living things, plants require nutrient elements to grow. The Plant Nutrition Manual describes the principles that determine how plants grow and discusses all the essential elements necessary for successful crop production. The nutritional needs of plants that add color and variety to our visual senses are addressed as well. Altogether, nutritional requirements are given for 143 plants grouped in seven categories from food crop plants to ornamentals.The text begins with an introduction to the basic principles of plant nutrition. Chapters 2 and 3 describe the roles of the major elements and micronutrients. The last two chapters describe techniques for determining the nutrient element status of growing plants through plant analysis and tissue tests. The Plant Nutrition Manual is loaded with information on what plants need for normal vigorous growth and development-free of nutritional stress.

Nice book related with fertilization processes. It uses a simple language to explain complex terminology. Despite it gives basic information, it can be helpful for different audience, from gardeners to growers and horticultural science students.

This is a nice compact book that can be used to teach plant nutrition. The directions on making DIY kits for tissue analysis are interesting. I wish the author had icluded a guiding range of values corresponding to the five elemental requirement categories in Appendix D.

The book is complete for everybody student teacher farmer easy to understand and to actual,if you like agronomics science this is the book
