Miller, Charles R.
This manual is designed to help agricultural education students to determine and provide the proper kinds and amounts of nutrients for the field crops they produce. The manual provides many learning situations regarding field crops--for example, determining nutrient needs, diagnosing nutrient shortages, and selecting and applying fertilizer and lime. The manual contains seven chapters that cover the following topics: crop nutrient requirements; soil chemistry and plant nutrient absorption; determining nutrient needs of crops; nutrient sources; fertilizer selection; fertilizer application; and lime selection and application. Each chapter includes objectives, practical applications, student exercises, science and mathematics concepts, and key terms, as well as information sheets illustrated with line drawings. A bibliography lists 12 suggested readings and 6 slide sets covering course content. (KC)
