Control mechanisms of clays and their specific surface area in growing media – assessment of clay properties and their parametrization for the optimization of plant quality

The addition of clay to growing media aims at constant supply of potassium, phosphorus and micro nutrients, pH-buffering, improvement of rewettability, and cohesion of growing media. The identification of suitable clays and their classification is a prerequisite for product and cultivation safety. A range of different clays highly variable in their mineral parameters were selected for experiments on nutrient buffering (P) and Mn toxicity, their ability to improve the rewettability and binding capacity of growing...
