Vegetable Crop Fertilization
Plants are living integrators of all soil and environmental factors from planting to final harvest. High yield potential due to correct soil pH, organic matter, drainage, and structure; use of quality seeds of responsive varieties; even and proper distribution of plant population; pest control; avoidance of phytotoxic substances in the soil and atmosphere; and proper crop rotation will increase yield response due to fertilizers.
