Article Topic(s): Fertilizer, Nutrients, Propagation
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Rudbeckia fulgida (Orange coneflower),
AbstractEvaluates effects of adding different ratios of ammonium (NH4+) and nitrate (NO3-) on the growth of Rudbeckia fulgida. Mixes of ammonium and nitrate enhanced accumulation of nutrients in Rudbeckia fulgida roots and shoots compared with adding either ammonium or nitrate alone.
