A new approach of crop nutrition and fertilization for sustainable agriculture

Sustainable nutrient management requires timely diagnostic of crop nutrition status to support yield while avoiding over- and under-fertilization and their associated environmental impacts. Lemaire et al. reviewed the concept of N, P, and K accumulation in proportion to crop growth and their allocation within plants and canopies. They show their potential usage to diagnose crop nutrition status, to analyze genotype-environment-management interactions driving crop yield and to phenotype crops.
