Plant Nutrition – Growth and Diagnosis Current Status and Future Prospects


Ramdane Dris PhD., Farouk Hassan Abdelaziz PhD., Shri Mohan Jain PhD.

Category: Plant

The book contains papers presented at workshop on the Influence of Environment on Growth, Production, Physiology and Disease of Crops which was held at the University of Helsinki, Finland, December 2000. Articles were selected for inclusion in the book after a process of peer-review and evolution by an editorial board. The main focus of this book is to deliver knowledge-based management tools. The use of recent methods or advanced techniques should make the information more meaningful to scientists and other readers and allow them to apply techniques to a wider range of crops. The manuscripts of this book address interactions between growth, mineral nutrition and quality performance for a wide variety of crops. Many scientists from different countries  shared in this work, and the papers selected include such topics as plant nutrition, prognosis and  fertilization regime and situation of chemical input on some food crops grown under different climatic conditions
