Microelements, the same as other factors, are responsible for the volume of harvest and its quality.

Microelements are subdivided into:

  • 5 metals (consumed by plants in the form of bivalent cations or in form of chelates):
    • Fe = iron;
    • Mn = magnesium;
    • Zn = zinc;
    • Cu = copper;
    • Mo = molybdenum (assimilated in form of ion (MoO4)2-).
  • 2 nonmetals:
    • Cl = chlorine, consumed by plants in form of ion (Cl)— (essential for some crops, takes part in osmotic pressure regulation and increases resistance of plants to some fungi;
    • B = boron, consumed by plants in form of (H2BO3)-;
  • Specific microelements essential for some crops:
    • Na = sodium (Na)+ (in some crops (white beets) can partly replace potassium
    • Si = silicon (used in form of silicate, increases the grain crops stem strength, reduces lodging);
    • Co = cobalt (necessary first of all for leguminous plants for better nitrogen fixation).

Microelements can be applied both as a complex fertilizer component and an an independent fertilizer.

Various crops are sensitive to the lack of certain microelements:

  • Grain crops : Cu и Mn;
  • Corn: Zn;
  • Grain legumes: B, Mo и Со;
  • Oil-yielding crops: B;
  • White beet: Mn, B, Na;
  • Potato: B and Cu;
  • Rice: Zn;
  • Cotton: Mn, B и Zn.
