The Agronomy Handbook is a comprehensive agronomy resource. The handbook discusses soil properties, plant essential nutrients, soil test results, and recommendations. Also, soil sampling, fertilizer application methods, nutrient deficiency symptoms in plants, plant tissue analysis, nutrient uptake and removal in crops, and conversion factors for U.S. and metric measurements.
Agriculture-related analyses are indispensable in supplying accurate, current information for making management decisions regarding soil fertility and plant nutrients. And, the maximum benefits occur if samples are taken properly, analyzed reliably, and interpreted correctly. Increasing world demand for food, feed, and fiber is challenging. Our present agricultural production systems need to satisfy an expanding world population. More food production requires increased acreage devoted to agricultural crops and increased yields.
