Fertilizers and soil improvers

C. Sonneveld, W. Voogt

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In greenhouse industry fertilizers as well as soil improvers are widely used. Fertilizers are mainly applied to optimize the physical-chemical conditions of the root environment and are used for growing in soils in situ as well as for growing in substrates. Soil improvers are materials solely added to soils in situ primarily to maintain or improve its physical properties, but it also can improve its chemical and biological properties. Thus the difference between fertilizers and soil improvers is somewhat diffuse.
