Nutrient management of Asian vegetables
This project investigates the general nutrient and specific nitrate guidelines for leafy vegetables aiming to address findings that these vegetables can potentially accumulate nitrate. The project has made a significant contribution to the understanding of the nutrition of leafy Asian vegetables in production, with a particular focus on nitrogen. To achieve this, the project determined some plant responses to fertiliser of a number of leafy vegetables grown in hydroponics. As part of the project, nutrient disorders have been documented as an aid to growers in the identification of plant symptoms.
