Product Description

The purpose of Nutrient Deficiencies & Toxicities in Crop Plants is to present the symptoms associated with essential nutrient deficiencies and excesses (toxicities).  These symptoms can be used as one means of determining deficiencies or toxicities and, fertilizer and / or soil amendment need.  Symptoms need to be used with other diagnostic tools including soil tests and plant tissue analyses plus information on the farmer's management practices. 

Plant growth abnormalities are an indicator or symptom of one or more unfavorable growing conditions.  The condition may be a lack or an excess of an essential plant nutrient or an excess of a nonessential element.  It may be an unsatisfactory environment---too cold or hot, too wet or dry, the lack of oxygen or  carbon dioxide, too much sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere, or too much wind.  It may be too much herbicide.  It could be a biological hazard such as disease, insects, or even birds and larger animals.  Many of the abnormal growth patterns, or symptoms, may be specific enough to pinpoint a nutrient deficiency or a toxicity.
