This symposium will present different strategies to improve plant nutrition, fertilization, and soil management in horticultural cropping systems. Specifically, physiological and genetic mechanisms of plant nutrition, root absorption and nutrient use efficiency will be addressed. The characterization of agronomic soil quality and the description of innovative cropping strategies with lower environmental impacts are also welcome. Innovative nutrient management approaches in the soil-plant system including new cropping systems, biofertilizers and bioactive compounds, microbiota as well as new sensors and data-based technologies will be emphasized.

The following topics will be developed during the symposium:

• Physiology and genetic of plant nutrition

• Root absorption, rootstock and root architecture

• Diagnosis of plant nutrient status and fruit quality

• Sustainable approaches to nutrient management (including soil management, intercropping and biofertilizers, bioactive compounds)

• Role of plant-microbe interactions in mineral nutrition

• Nutrient use efficiency

• Organic fertilization and amendments impacts on soil agronomic quality

• Soil ecology

• Soil organic matter-contaminant interactions and possible groundwater pollution

• Mineral supply technology

• Plant mineral nutrition and impact on human nutrition status

• Interactions between water management, biotic and abiotic stresses and nutrition

• Sensors, data driven, models and tools for decision-making

• Economic, social and environmental impact of improved plant nutrition
