Plant nutrition in greenhouse cultivation differs from field production, and this volume details specific information about testing methods for soils and substrates in a greenhouse environment. It does so while offering a universally applicable analysis.

From the reviews: "This book is a comprehensive, detailed treatise on fertilisation and nutrient relationships in growing media and hydroponics. ... the book is of most value to research workers in soilless culture and substrate methods of growing under glass, and students on final year horticulture and applied plant science courses. ... is likely to form the standard reference work on plant nutrition in glasshouse crops for many years." (Bill Carlile, Chronica Horticulturae, Vol. 50 (3), 2010) "This 17-chapter book covers a wide range of topics, including fertilizers and soil improvements; soil, substrate, and tissue testing; water uptake, supply, and quality ... . References are listed at the end of each chapter. ... Color photographs of disorders caused by calcium deficiency or excess in several species of vegetable and floral crops are also included. ... An index includes references to nutrient elements as well as topics covered in the book. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (F. G. Dennis Jr., Choice, Vol. 47 (11), July, 2010)
