In recent years, greenhouse growers have developed a better understanding of how water quality can impact potting media pH, soluble salts, fertility, and plant growth. This six-page publication provides information on water quality factors (pH, alkalinity, hardness, salts, micronutrients) as well as on the importance of regular testing to maintain effective water treatment. Includes comprehensive tables of recommended chemical limits of irrigation water and of acids used to neutralize alkalinity—and improve crop quality.
