Soil Quality and Nutritional Problems

All plants have basic nutrient requirements. Observing plants for nutrient deficiency symptoms can be helpful in determining if a specific nutrient is lacking.  Learn how to identify symptoms of nutrient deficiencies by testing soil quality, determining the location and appearance of the problems or addressing other plant stress factors.  

What you'll learn:
  • A systematic approach to correctly diagnosing plant problems based on available symptoms and signs. 
  • Differentiation of environmental and cultural problems from those caused by biotic organisms. 
  • Issues with soil quality especially in constructed landscapes, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, correct problem identification and solution recommendation.
