Overall Benefits of Micronutrients
Micronutrients are naturally occurring elements that growing plants need. However, the naturally occurring supply is low, which can often limit crop growth and yield potential. When matched to soil and crop need, micronutrients can correct deficiencies, enhance the photosynthesis process, improve plant enzyme systems, regulate flowering and seed development, and even regulate the conversion of nitrogen to protein.
Boron (B) is an essential nutrient in cell development, flowering and pollination.
Calcium (Ca) is a component of cell walls and membranes, and helps regulate cell growth.
Copper (Cu) is needed for protein synthesis and nitrogen metabolism.
Iron (Fe) performs vital functions in energy transfers, and is a component of many plant proteins.
Magnesium (Mg) is the central molecule of chlorophyll, the plant's green pigment.
Manganese (Mn) is a part of several plant enzymes, and plays a major role in photosynthesis.
Molybdenum (Mo) plays a key role in protein synthesis, nitrogen metabolism and chlorophyll concentration.
Sulfur (S) is essential for a variety of plant functions, and helps convert nitrogen into protein.
Zinc (Zn) is needed to regulate the synthesis of protein, starch and growth hormones in plants.
