Balanced Fertilization for Important Cut Flower Crops


All over the world, the floriculture sector undergoes rapid changes. Due to globalization and its effect on income development in different regions of the world,
growing per capita consumption in most countries is realized. The export of floricultural products from India has been on the increase in the past five years with the introduction
of new floriculture products and ever increasing demand from the importing countries. This warrants efforts to boost the productivity and quality of the produce which meet the
required international standards. To ensure maximization of productivity in any crop, balanced nutrient supply is an important factor and these cut flowers are not an exception.
Efficient nutrient use results from balanced fertilization and sound management practices. When balanced fertilization is practiced, it increases the efficiency of others through a
synergistic effect.
