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.

This user-friendly, practical guide was written for large and small greenhouse producers of containerized crops throughout the United States and all climates of North America. Inside you’ll find a thorough overview of plant nutrition and water quality. Originally associated with floriculture crops and “out-of-season” vegetable production, greenhouse production has experienced a recent sea change: new marketing trends, organic production, improved and more efficient production technologies, and the introduction of new laws and regulations related to environmental sustainability and food safety. To be successful, professional growers need to be equipped with a comprehensive understanding of greenhouse management today. Written by industry-based professionals and academics, its seventeen chapters demonstrate how water, root media, and fertilizer are integrated to optimize plant health, production efficiency, and the sustainability of resources and the environment.

High-quality plants and aesthetically striking landscapes are trademarks of the western United States. The climatic zones resulting from the interaction of the cool Pacific Ocean and dramatic mountain ranges allow a very diverse array of plants to be grown in the West. Western Fertilizer Handbook, Third Horticulture Edition presents information clearly to a lay audience while also being useful for advanced field practitioners. The book’s first five chapters provide basic information on best practices for growing plants, followed by chapters on fertilizers. After an introduction to hydroponic techniques, the handbook concludes with diagnostic techniques and nutrient management guidelines. Each chapter ends with suggestions for supplementary reading that allow the reader to explore topics more deeply. The appendices gather useful tables and techniques for managing and working with fertilizers. Turf and ornamental professionals are under increasing pressure to recommend and use sustainable practices. By improving one’s knowledge of the growth and development of plants and the media, water, and fertilizer used to grow them, the turf and ornamental industry can continue to produce the stunning landscapes the world associates with the western United States.
