  This is a great book, inexpensive, comprehensive, and worthwhile. Please consider this book if you at all work in production agriculture, horticulture, love plants, etc. It explains the soil-nutrient-plant relationship very well and in easy to understand language. Though this is a scientific book, it's something that an everyday person can /5(15). A brief treatment of fertilizer follows. For full treatment, see agricultural technology: Fertilizing and conditioning the soil. The use of manure and composts as fertilizers is probably almost as old as chemical fertilizers include one or more of the three elements that are most important in plant nutrition: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Gardeners use fertilizers to provide additional nutrition to plants. Plants may not receive everything they need for healthy growth from the soil. Fertilizers can improve yields in a vegetable garden or increase flowering in an ornamental garden. The book covers the essentials of plant nutrition and irrigation management. Throughout the pages of the book, the author shares his knowledge on the most important aspects of crop nutrition and irrigation, including: Plant nutrients, their roles in plants and behavior in soil and water; Fertilizer management practices.

About Fertilizer There are three essential macronutrients-nutrients needed in large amounts-that are the most commonly referenced in fertilizers. By understanding how each of these components influences plant growth and knowing your soil deficiencies (through a soil test), choosing fertilizer can be easy. On most fertilizer packaging, three numbers are listed, separated by dashes (e.g. ). The method you use to apply fertilizer to your vegetable garden depends on the fertilizer you’ve chosen, whether it’s liquid or granular. If your vegetable garden has fertile soil enhanced by compost and other organic materials, fertilizing may not be necessary. Still, vegetables are a hungry group, and feeding them can certainly speed growth and [ ]. Equally important, the manual includes chapters on fertilizer use, production and distribution economics, raw materials, and the status of the fertilizer industry with demand-supply projections. Professionals involved with any phase of fertilizer production, use, marketing, or distribution will find this book /5(8).

Many fertilizers are formulated for specific plants like roses, bulbs, or vegetables. Be sure to check the label for the N-P-K ratio, as you may be able to use a general fertilizer with close to the same nutrient percentages but at a lower price. In addition to N-P-K, most fertilizers contain traces of other elements important to plant health. Fertilizers are key for meeting the world s demands for food, fiber, and fuel. Featuring nearly 4, terms of interest to all scientists and researchers dealing with fertilizers, The Fertilizer Encyclopedia compiles a wealth of information on the chemical composition of fertilizers, and includes information on everything from manufacturing and applications to economical and environmental. The history of fertilizer has largely shaped political, economic, and social circumstances in their traditional uses. Subsequently, there has been a radical reshaping of environmental conditions following the development of chemically synthesized fertilizers. History. Egyptians, Romans, Babylonians, and early Germans all are recorded as using.
