MICRONUTRIENTS

Balanced plant nutrition is a well-rounded, integrated approach to meet thenutritional need of the crop and of humankind. The concept of BPN does not stop at administering NPK but also incorporates secondary and micronutrients. There are about six micro-nutrients essential to plant growth, health, these are manganese, boron, copper, iron, molybdenum, and zinc. Though they are present in only small quantities, they are all necessary as none can be the substitute of other (Liebig’s law of minimum).
Micronutrient deficiencies are widespread. 50% of world cereal soils are deficient in zinc and 30% of cultivated soils globally are deficient in iron. Steady growth of crop yields during recent decades compounded the problem by progressively depleting soil micronutrient pools.

Function of different micro-nutrients


IRON

Iron is essential for chlorophyll synthesis and part of the electron carrier cytochrome.

MANGANESE

It is a component of chloroplast and thus participates in reaction leading to evolution of oxygen.

ZINC

Zinc is essential for the synthesis of plant growth hormone. The concentration of zinc also regulates the protein synthesis in plants.

COPPER

Copper plays an important role in protein synthesis. It is a component of some enzymes and of vitamin A.

MOLYBDENUM

Molybdenum is essential in the enzyme system of nitrate-reductase and used by plants to reduce nitrates into usable forms.

BORON

Boron is involved in carbohydrate transport and metabolism in plants; it also assists in metabolic regulation.

SOIL CONDITIONER

Soil Conditioner is added to the soil to improve its physical qualities, especially the ability to provide nutrition for plants. Soil conditioners can be used to improve poor soils, or to rebuild soils which have been damaged by improper management. They can make poor soils more usable, and can be used to maintain soils in peak condition. The most common use of soil conditioners is to improve soil structure. They can also greatly increase the cation exchange capacity of soils. Soil conditioners may be used to improve water retention in dry, coarse soils which are not holding water well.
