Food security is a major global concern. It depends to a considerable extent on efficient plant nutrition. Extensive information on various aspects of plant nutrition has been generated in the recent past. However, this information remains scattered in several publications. This bulletin provides comprehensive updated coverage of the key aspects of plant nutrition with special reference to integrated nutrient management for crop production.

The topics covered include: present and future demand for plant nutrients; food security and agricultural production; plant nutrients and the basics of plant nutrition; soil fertility and crop production; sources of plant nutrients and soil amendments; optimizing plant nutrition; guidelines for the management of plant nutrients and their sources; nutrient management guidelines for major field crops; economic and policy issues of plant nutrition; plant nutrition, food quality and consumer health; and plant nutrition and environmental issues.
