In order to obtain high yields of good quality, it is necessary that all plant growth factors are presented in certain harmonious combinations that best meet the needs of plants in the relevant periods of their growth and development.
In practical conditions, such a combination is created by a set of agronomic measures, a significant role in this is played by the process of fertilizer application.
Microfertilizers are fertilizers that contain trace elements – chemicals necessary for the normal functioning of plants and used by the latter in extremely small quantities compared to the main components of mineral nutrition. Lack of trace elements in the soil does not lead to plant death, but is the reason for the decrease in the speed and consistency of the processes responsible for the development of the organism. As a result, plants do not realize their genetic potential and give low and poor yields.
Trace elements, the main of which you can see in the table, are necessary for normal growth and development of plants. They are part of enzymes, vitamins, hormones and other biologically active substances, and also play a significant role in the processes of photosynthesis of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and more. With the optimal provision of plants with trace elements, their development is accelerated, resistance to diseases and pests is increased, and the influence of external adverse factors and pathogens is reduced.
|Trace element||Basic functions in the plant||Sensitive to culture deficit||Symptoms|
|Mn||Electron acceptor in the process of photosynthesis||Cereal grains. Rapeseed. Sugar Beet.||Pale green and deformed leaves. Yellow spots on the joints|
|B||Germination of pollen. Ovary growth
|Rapeseed. Sugar beet||Extended flowering period. Damage to the root core|
|Cu||Lignin synthesis. Pollen production||Cereal grains||Whitening and death of leaf tips.|
|Fe||Photosynthesis. Protein synthesis, formation
|Cereals. Beans.||Interveinal chlorosis of young leaves|
|K||Improve the learning of the item and its
