Summary

This booklet discusses two basic life processes in nature:growth and differentiation.It uses the examples of apples,carrots and wheat to illustrate how growers can recognize these processes and can take practical measures to correct the balance between them in order to optimize the quality of their products.Thinking in growth and differentiation has proved valuable in the support,offered to growers by the Louis Bolk Instituut. It also speculates about the possible significance of these processes for human health.
