Toxicity in plants and optimal growth under fertilizer

  • D. K. Bhattacharya


The paper determines by control-theoretic means the optimal dose of fertilizer to be used to two plants for maintaining optimal revival of their growths, which are retarded mainly due to the toxicity contributed by the plants jointly.
