troughs are taken. These are filled with nutrient solution.
(b) To study the role and requirement of any mineral
element, a set of vessels are taken.
(c) In one vessel, normal nutrient solution is taken
while in others the same nutrient solution minus one of the elements (whose effect you want to study is taken).
