      Biostimulants comprise organic compounds (such as humic and fulvic acids, protein hydrolysates, seaweed and plant extracts, microorganisms such as mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhizal fungi, bacterial endosymbionts, and plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria) and .   Of these, eight nutrients are required in smaller amounts (boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel and zinc), dubbed micronutrients — as well as several elements that have been identified as non-essential, yet beneficial such as cobalt, silicon, selenium, vanadium, etc.

      CROP PRODUCTION; ART, SCIENCE AND BUSINESS Crop Production is the art and science of the genetic improvement of crops to produce new varieties with increased productivity and quality. The advanced genetic and molecular techniques have resulted in new varieties of crop plants, medicinal plants and ornamentals. Losses of micronutrients through erosion, leaching, liming of acid soils, decreased proportions of farmyard manure com-pared to chemical fertilizers, and use of marginal lands for crop production are other factors that have increased the inci-dence of micronutrient deficiencies in agricultural soil world-wide (Fageria et al., ).

This would substantially reduce the risk of micronutrient malnutrition to the most at risk people globally. Furthermore, any increase in the production of more micronutrient-rich foods (micronutrient-dense food crops, livestock, dairy or fish) could contribute greatly to finding sustainable solutions to micronutrient malnutrition.

: Micronutrients in Tropical Food Crop Production (Developments in Plant and Soil Sciences) (): Vlek, Paul L.G.: Books. The effects may range from slight yield reductions to complete crop failure.

While the economic impact of omitting micronutrients in seriously affected areas (e.g., Micronutrients in tropical food crop production book in Brazilian Cerrado) is convincing, it is difficult to estimate the yearly loss in crop production due to unsuspected micronutrient deficiency.

`In view of the basic importance of food production in tropical regions, many investigators in the interdisciplinary field of economic botany who directly or tangentially are involved in the improvement of standards ofliving and nutrition in the tropics will find in this book a wealth of information that is difficult to locate in the diffuse literature that has grown up concerning micronutrients.

In the major crops and production areas of North America, the micronutrients mos often supplied by fertilization include zinc, manganese, boron and iron. Micronutrient defciencies can be detected by visual symptoms on crops and by tesing. important roles in crop production.

Each type of plant is unique and has an optimum nutrient range as well as a minimum requirement level. Below this minimum level, plants start to show nutri-ent deficiency symptoms.

Excessive nutrient uptake can also cause poor growth because of toxicity. Therefore, the proper amount of application and the. food grain production in the country (Hand Book of Agriculture by ICAR, ).

These micronutrients are often called minor or trace elements. These nutrients—boron, zinc, molybdenum, iron, manganese, copper, chlorine, and nickel—are needed for plant growth, development, and reproduction. Most Mississippi soils have enough of these nutrients for crop production.

Micronutrient availability is greatly influenced by soil pH. integration might be the use of crop residues to increase animal production, and the use of manures to increase crop production.

Integration is a way of maximizing outputs (food for the family, farm products for sale, etc.) and minimizing inputs (purchase, labor). Integration on small tropical farms is often lacking, even when possible.

Micronutrient fertilizer sources are mostly sulfates for Zn, Cu, and Mn, but chelates are the usual Fe source, and borax and sodium molybdate are used for B and Mo, respectively. Soil pH is the soil property that most influences micronutrient availability, and for all but Mo, the higher the soil pH, the lower is the plant availability.

Micronutrients in Tropical Food Crop Production (Developments in Plant and Soil Sciences) by Paul L.G. Vlek | A deficiency of one or more of the eight plant micronutrients (boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel and zinc) will adversely affect both the yield and quality of crops.

In the past, crops in Asia depended mainly on the natural fertility of the soil for their nutrients. Micronutrient deficiencies were rarely seen. Nowadays, it is chemical fertilizers which are supplying most of the nutrients needed by crops.

The problem is that farmers in Asia are not applying all the nutrients needed. They tend to apply too much nitrogen and no micronutrients at all. PDF | On Jan 1,R.

Plants differ in their need for micronutrients; boron (B), iron (Fe), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), chloride (Cl), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo) and nickel (Ni). micronutrients in crop production.
