Quinoa, Nutrient Deficiencies, Hydroponics
- Need: Nutrient deficiency symptoms and concentrations in quinoa plants as reference material for farmers to help them maximize their yields.
- Problem: Difficult to manipulate nutrient concentrations in soils. Many hydroponic recipes use dual-nutrient compounds creating interactions.
- Solution: Create a new recipe with each nutrient added in a single nutrient compound and use it to record nutrient deficiency symptoms in quinoa.
