Foliar Fertilization -Introduction & Background. Roots are leaves in the ground, and leaves are roots in the air. —Alan Chadwick. For many years, cultivators have used foliar sprays to feed their crops. It help plants to gain all the nutritions that plants need through their leaves.
Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Situational Analysis Soil productivity is an important concern for farmers. Green manuring, crop rotation and mix farming are oftenly used to improve the soil fertility at the same time the nutrients used in plant growth are conserved and returned to the soil to enhance its fertility (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 1993). Green manuring is the plowing under or soil incorporation of any green manure crops while they are green or soon after they flower. Green manures are grown for their leafy materials needed for soil conservation (Boller et al., 2004). Plants are commonly used for green manuring have Rhizobia bacteria for nitrogen fixation similarly crop rotation is alternating legumes and non-legumes plants Most plants
In ecological engineering, its principle lies on the use of cultural techniques making used of flowering plants. This practice could provide source of nectars and pollens, food of carnivorous insects and many parasitoids. The conservation of rich community is essential to sustainable integrated pest management (IPM). Thus, a good structured field is rich with beneficial diversity of arthropods (Philippine Rice Research Institite
planting of ornamental plants can be one aspect the may influence growth of trees and flowers in the landscape. therefore, only those beneficial practices should adopt to help plants attain maximum growth as we expect them. As our desire may highly be to produce healthy and acceptable plants in the landscape, this calls for almost practices the should be employed in the planting of ornamental plants. There may a number of practices that are used in planting ornamental plants, but only a few are regarded as best practice in for planting ornamental plants. The work of klingeman; and Griffin, (2007) revealed that there are three best practice in for planting ornamental plants beside other management practices.

On the beneficial side, microbes are essential for nutrient cycling and sustainability of life on earth (Sylvia, 2005). Mycorrhizal fungi are one of these functional groups. Majority of plants growing under natural conditions have fungal associations with their roots and such ‘fungus-roots’ are called mycorrhizae.The mycorrhizae may be ectotrophic or endotrophic according to the major area of fungal colonization in the roots. The fungal partner in endotrophic mycorrhizae may belong to different groups. The term mycorrhiza, fungusroot, was described in 1885 by the German forest pathologist, A.
The company was named after the Lupin flower because of the inherent qualities of the flower and what it personifies and stands for. The Lupin flower is known to nourish the land, the very soil it grows in. The Lupin flower is also known to be tolerant of infertile soils and capable of pioneering change in barren and poor climes. The Lupin flower and bean pods have also long been used as food and sources of nourishment, thus protecting and nurturing life. Embedded in Lupin was a formula for growth.
For example, it helps in the management of hypertension and diabetes. The high dietary contents of this vegetable can help to slow down the digestion and conversion of starch to simple sugars. (The Nation Newspaper, 2016) 2.2 The effect of Soil pH on plants. Soil pH is one of the most routinely measured soil parameters and is used as the benchmark for the interpretation of soil chemical process. Soil pH governs the availability of many elements that are essential for, or toxic to, plant growth.
It intends to produce high quality, nutritious food that adds to preventive healthcare and wellbeing. Fertilisers, pesticides, animal drugs and food additives, which cause adverse effects are the inverse of health. 2 THE PRINCIPLE OF ECOLOGY “Organic agriculture should be based on living ecological systems and cycles, work with them, emulate them and help sustain
Fertiliser is used on plants with the solid form and the form of pesticides. They are being used in big areas of plants as well as a household garden. People usually spray the fertiliser on the plants which is the form of a liquid. They can also put it into the soil after all it is suppose to make the soil more fertile. Most fertilisers are based on the three major plant nutrients Nitrogen (N) which is used for green leafy growth.
