Nutrient Deficiencies in Bedding Plants PDF Summary

With information on 25 popular seed and cutting-propagated bedding plant species, this fully illustrated study based on research conducted at North Carolina State University explains the causes of nutrient deficiencies and provides diagnostic techniques for each one as well as corrective procedures and proactive measures to help growers avoid plant nutrient problems altogether. With a chapter devoted to each crop--including impatiens, begonia, pepper, tomato, and basil--this guide features color photographs showing the progressive stages of deficiency for 11 nutrients essential for healthy plant growth. With this resource, growers will be able to diagnose deficiencies at various stages so that problems may be treated early and growers will be able to minimize crop damage and maximize a crop’s economic value.
