  • A book with a review about plant nutrition in greenhouse crops is unique
  • Contains basic knowledge as well as information about applied research data
  • Yield and quality of greenhouse crops are discussed in relation to plant nutrition
  • Salinity and fertilization are discussed in relation to sustainable production
  • Fertilization systems discussed have been proved in computerized control systems
  • Covers soil grown crops as well as substrate grown crops

Greenhouse cultivation is noted for its high uptake of minerals, consistent climatic conditions, exclusion of natural precipitation and control of salt accumulation. Acknowledging that plant nutrition in greenhouse cultivation differs in many essentials from field production, this volume details specific information about testing methods for soils and substrates in a greenhouse environment. It does so while offering a universally applicable analysis. This is based on the composition of the soil and substrate solutions, methods for the interpretation of tissue tests, and crop responses on salinity and water supply in relation to fertilizer application. Fertilizer additions, related to analytical data of soil and substrate samples, are presented for a wide range of vegetable and ornamental crops. The subject is especially apt now as substrate growing offers excellent possibilities for the optimal use of water and nutrients, as well as the potential for sustainable production methods for greenhouse crops.
