The mystery of the missing nitrogen : Watering to plant's need is getting a step closer

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

To analyse the mineral balance Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture took many measurements at the nursery of chrysanthemum grower Jos and Ron Ammerlaan. Part of the nitrogen appears to disappear due to denitrification. Growers can steer the crop more by adjusting the water supply and the composition of the fertiliser. For thisĀ a good sensor is essential, says the grower.
