What type of sources am I looking for?

Often times we can find sources, but the questions is what sources to actually use. Check out Choosing & Using Sources: A Guide to Academic Research from Ohio State University

Also keep in mind that in disciplines like agriculture and horticulture, there is a lot of practical literature produced for direct application by farmers and growers. Look for things such a production handbooks or manuals. Peer reviewed journal articles can help with understanding the ecology, biology, and chemical compositions. Books can be helpful in giving general information for beginning a project and obtaining vocabulary related to your topic.
