Possibilities for Optimalization of Plant Nutrition by New Agrochemical Substances--Especially in Cereals

Part of the Nato Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 22)


When discussing measures for further increasing crop production by optimalizing plant nutrition, it is natural to start by asking to what extent the productivity of crop plants can be increased under specific conditions. It is well known that the yield level of one and the same plant can vary considerably under the various cultivation conditions found in world agriculture. The factors responsible for these variations in productivity may be such that they cannot be influenced by realistic production techniques. Frequently, however, in the traditional cultivation areas of a crop, growth factors are involved that can be substantially influenced and optimalized by appropriate measures.
