While discussing the effects of growing media on the nutrient intake into the plant, we need to be reminded of the means of nutrients made available,
Plant nutrients and their feeding schedule is the most important factor. Simply follow the direction in the nutrient chart of the respective brands for better results.
A plant that lacks an important nutrient cannot complete its life cycle; the seed might not germinate; the plant might not possibly develop roots, stems, leaves, or flowers properly;
The essential macronutrients like nitrogen(N), phosphorus(P) and potassium(K) are optimum for plant growth. Any changes in nutrient concentrations retard the plant development, hence needs to be checked every now and then. To check for the nutrient aspect in the soil, ‘Soil Testing ’ is done. The soil testing involves the full range of chemical, physical […]
Toxicity in plants is due to increased concentration of micronutrients in plant tissue. The toxicity level varies for any type of nutrients, also for different types of plants. Few tips in order to prevent toxicity in plants are: A traditional way of liming will do in initial stages. Follow the recommended rates of fertilizers’ use […]
Nutrients are the main course of ingredients for plant growth. And micronutrients are the one which is required in moderate quantities. If the consumptions are below moderate causes the deficiency symptoms and a moderate increase causes toxicity. Any mineral ion concentration in tissues that reduces the dry weight of tissues by about 10 per cent […]
Nutrients are the chemical compounds necessary for plant metabolism and external growth, they are present in the soil as salts, so plants can absorb these elements as ions. Without these nutrients plants cannot complete its life cycle. There are 17 essential nutrients and are grouped under relative categories: Primary Nutrients– Also known as Macronutrients are […]
