Micronutrient

Micronutrients

Bootstrap Example
Zinc
  • Zinc strengthens the plant cells and regulates the cell production of healthier crops.
  • Zinc deficient plants are more susceptible to Fusarium Wilt.
  • It promotes growth hormones and starch formation.
  • It promotes seed maturation and production.
  • Zinc is very useful for crops such as wheat, paddy, sugarcane, soybean, grape, cotton, citrus, corn, potato, cumin, coriander, garlic, onion, etc.
Ferrous
  • Fe is essential for the synthesis of chlorophyll, the green colour of plants which functions in photosynthesis but it is not part of the chlorophyll molecule.
  • Iron is involved in N fixation, photosynthesis, electron transfer, respiratory enzyme systems as a part of cytochrome, haemoglobin and in other enzyme systems.
  • It also can be used as feed additive to cure plant’s ferrous deficiency.
  • Now more and more farmers are applying micronutrient fertilizers such as Ferrous sulphate.
Boron
  • Boron deficiency affects vegetative and reproductive growth of plants, resulting in inhibition of cells. expansion, death of meristem and reduced fertility.
  • It is an efficient product to correct Boron deficiency.
  • It helps to control the transport of sugar in plants.
  • It is important for cell division and seed development.
  • Boron increases flower production and retention, pollen tube elongation, germination and fruit development.
Calcium
  • Calcium is the single most important nutrient in high production horticultural crops and Calcium provides chelated calcium which can be rapidly absorbed.
  • Calcium must only be used for correction of deficiency in vegetable crops, fruit crops, field crops only as determined by foliar and soil testing.
  • Calcium works for root development during early growth stage of plant.
  • Calcium is the part of cell wall and hence cell division, cell elongation process.
Magnesium
  • Magnesium Activate many plant enzymes required in growth process.
  • Magnesium Helps in translocation phosphorus and potash in the plant, help in fruit development increases sugar contain and size and vitamin C in the fruit.
  • Magnesium Can be used through drip irrigation as well as through foliar application for correct deficiency.
Manganese
  • Manganese is one of nine essential nutrients that plants require for growth.
  • Many processes are dependent on this nutrient, including chloroplast formation, photosynthesis, nitrogen metabolism and synthesis of some enzymes.
  • This role of manganese in plants is extremely crucial.
Copper
  • Copper activates some enzymes in plants which are involved in lignin synthesis and it is essential in several enzyme systems.
  • It is also required in the process of photosynthesis, is essential in plant respiration and assists in plant metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins.
