Nutrient deficiencies in horticulture refer to the inadequate supply of essential nutrients required for the healthy growth and development of plants. These nutrients are essential for various physiological processes, and their deficiency can lead to stunted growth, poor yields, and a range of visual symptoms that can help identify the specific nutrient lacking in the plant. The primary nutrients required by plants are divided into macronutrients and micronutrients.
Diagnosing nutrient deficiencies in horticulture involves observing plant symptoms, conducting soil tests, and analysing plant tissue to determine the specific nutrient lacking in the plant. Correcting deficiencies typically involves amending the soil with the missing nutrient through fertilisation or adjusting pH levels, ensuring that plants have access to all the essential elements they need for healthy growth and optimal yield.
