Written specifically for western agriculture, this straightforward handbook gives growers an excellent foundation for developing an understanding of agronomic principles and practices to produce healthy crops and meet 21st-century production demands. The text presents fertilization, nutrient management, and related topics based on the fundamentals of biological and physical sciences. It explains the interrelation of soil type, moisture, and the macro- and micronutrients to grow plants successfully. In the ninth edition, the highly credentialed editors place more emphasis on the relationships of fertilizer application and crop management to environmental quality and long-term productivity.
