Tracking nutrient levels is very important in producing healthy crops, and diagnosing a nutrient deficiency early may mean the difference between a lush crop and an unsalable one. Nutrient Deficiencies of Bedding Plants is the first book to explain and illustrate, in depth 11 nutrient deficiencies in 15 bedding plant crops. The first chapter describes the causes of these deficiencies and corrective procedures. Subsequent chapters detail out by crop and nutrient each deficiency with photos showing the progression of symptoms with corresponding text under each photo. This is a must-have book for anyone growing or retailing bedding plants!
