Caring for container plants

Sometimes, when you are taking care of your container plants, you might see a white or yellowish build up around the edges of the pot, or even on the soil itself. Many people wonder what this is, and want to either repot the plant entirely, or sadly, think that there is something wrong with the plant and just stop trying.

Specifically, let's take a look at the people out in the fields and feedlots performing the day-to-day operations vital in producing food, fiber, and fuel.
