Soilless Culture Theory and Practice Book Description :

Plant production in hydroponics and soilless culture is rapidly expanding throughout the world, raising a great interest in the scientific community. For the first time in an authoritative reference book, authors cover both theoretical and practical aspects of hydroponics (growing plants without the use of soil). This reference book covers the state-of-the-art in this area, while offering a clear view of supplying plants with nutrients other than soil. Soilless Culture provides the reader with an understanding of the properties of the various soiless media and how these properties affect plant performance in relation to basic horticultural operations, such as irrigation and fertilization. This book is ideal for agronomists, horticulturalists, greenhouse and nursery managers, extension specialists, and people involved with the production of plants. * Comprehensive discussion of hydroponic systems, irrigation, and control measures allows readers to achieve optimal performance * State-of-the-art book on all theoretical aspects of hydroponics and soilless culture including a thorough description of the root system, its functions and limitation posed by restricted root volume * Critical and updated reviews of current analytical methods and how to translate their results to irrigation and fertilization practices * Definitive chapters on recycled, no-discharge systems including salinity and nutrition management and pathogen eradication * Up-to-date description of all important types of growing media

Soilless Culture Book Description :

Soilless Culture - Use of Substrates for the Production of Quality Horticultural Crops provides useful information on the techniques of growing horticultural crops using either inert organic or inorganic substrates and also on use of substrates consisting locally available and inexpensive materials with adequate physical and chemical properties. The contents mainly includes influence of different substrates on horticultural crops grown under soilless culture, production of vegetables and ornamental crops in water shortage area, comparative evaluation of commercial inert substrate used for growing high value horticultural crops. In this book, interesting researches from around the world are brought together to produce a resource for teachers, researcher, and advanced students of biological science.

Soilless Culture Management Book Description :

Hydroponics, the method of growing plants without soil, presents a feasible alternative to conventional farming in areas which are short on water supply and limited in agricultural soil. This book will serve as an indispensable guide for students in the agriculture sciences, for agriculture instructors and soilless-culture farmers. It provides up-to-date information on optimal plant nutrition, deficiencies and toxicities of nutrients, plant growth media, optimal root environment, environmental control, carbon dioxide requirements, saline conditions and use of sewage in soilless culture. Other topics include economic aspects of hydroponics, new growth methods and an outlook for the future.

Soilless Culture Book Description :

Horticulture has expanded into different regions, enabling farmers to produce high yields and produce high quality crops, even under adverse growing conditions. Plant production in hydroponics and soilless culture is rapidly expanding throughout the world, raising a great interest in the scientific community.This book as the name suggests "Soilless Culture" covers both theoretical and practical aspects as well as research studies of growing plants in the absence of soil. It covers the state-of-the-art in this area, while offering a clear view of providing plants with nutrients other than soil. It focuses on key topics such as nutrient analysis and key irrigation technologies and substrate choice of soil and soilless horticulture grown in a greenhouse. Furthermore, effect of different growing substrates on physiological processes as well as a comparison between hydroponic and soil-grown strawberries is also presented. The contents mainly includes influence of different substrates on horticultural crops grown under soilless culture, production of vegetables and ornamental crops in water shortage area, comparative evaluation of commercial inert substrate used for growing high value horticultural crops. This book provides the reader with an understanding of the properties of the various soilless media and how these properties affect plant performance in relation to basic horticultural operations, such as irrigation and fertilization. The chapters contributed by eminent authors, researchers and field experts are from around the globe and brought together to produce a resource for teachers, researcher, advanced students of biological science, agronomists, horticulturalists, greenhouse and nursery managers, and individuals involved with the production of plants.
