Potassium demands of individual plant species and genotypes are different. Vegetables are mostly regarded as potassium-loving plant species, which is why their optimal supply is very important.

The large number of species with specific demands for mineral nutrition, combined with many different production systems, is what makes vegetable production so specific.

Additionally, vegetable production is one of the most intensive branches of plant production. Vegetables are used for different processed products, and with high contents of nutrients and protective agents they are very important for human nutrition.

All this combined means vegetables very important in the total food production, and are of great economic value, prompting the decision to publish this book looking at vegetable nutrition with potassium.

The focus of the conference was on plant nutrition and its aim to provide sustainable agriculture, which emphasise on soil fertility and quality of plant production. Further objectives were to assess the present trends in plant nutrition with respect to the environment and to outline possible procedures, which are acceptable for agricultural practice under the existing economic conditions.

The proceedings contain papers aggregated in five sessions: 1) Joint proceedings; 2) Theoretical aspects in plant nutrition; 3) Sustainability of soil fertility; 4) Plant nutrition - an important factor for quality production and 5) Agrochemical use of waste materials.

Most of the papers are in Czech language, with English abstract. Some papers are in English. See the list of papers below.
