This user-friendly, practical guide was written for large and small greenhouse producers of containerized crops throughout the United States and all climates of North America. Inside you'll find a thorough overview of plant nutrition and water quality.

Originally associated with floriculture crops and "out-of-season" vegetable production, greenhouse production has experienced a recent sea change: new marketing trends, organic production, improved and more efficient production technologies, and the introduction of new laws and regulations related to environmental sustainability and food safety. To be successful, professional growers need to be equipped with a comprehensive understanding of greenhouse management today.

This publication provides solid information on all aspects of greenhouse production. Written by industry-based professionals and academics, its seventeen chapters demonstrate how water, root media, and fertilizer are integrated to optimize plant health, production efficiency, and the sustainability of resources and the environment.
