Three Saturday sessions:

What are mineral nutrients, and how do plants use them?

What are the signs of deficiencies and toxicities?

In this course, you will learn some mineral nutrient basics through an overview of soils, chemistry, and plant anatomy.

This class will explore how plants acquire, use, and translocate mineral nutrients.

We will also learn how to determine the impact of mineral nutrients on a plant’s health and how to help plants suffering from improper nutrition.
