Because of higher yields, higher commodity prices and higher costs of crop inputs, growers are reviewing all potential barriers to crop growth and production, including micronutrient deficiencies.

 

For most micronutrients, crop uptake is less than 1 pound per acre. But that doesn’t mean they are unimportant. To the contrary, in spite of this low requirement, critical plant functions are limited if micronutrients are unavailable — resulting in plant abnormalities, reduced growth and lower yields.

 

Check out this edition of Pioneer Hi-Bred’s Crop Insights that discusses general micronutrient requirements, deficiency symptoms, soil and plant sampling and fertilization practices.
