I believe The 3-volume Garden Doctor set is the definitive work on nutrient deficiency symptoms and corrective treatments for vegetables and fruits.

With about 800 color photos showing deficiency symptoms of all 13 nutrients man can provide, with examples of many common vegetables, these books have helped me solve problems other people thought were diseases, by simply adding small amounts of natural minerals.

I wouldn't be without these great reference books, and recommend them most highly to anyone who is serious about vegetable or fruit production.
