Specialty Agriculture | Micronutrients

Micronutrients from Plant Food Company are a great choice for producing healthy, attractive yields. Reviewing your soil reports and properly applying our Micronutrient fertilizers will help you avoid devastating nutrient deficiency damage.

Micronutrient deficiencies will cause a red or yellow discoloration to the leaf tissue. When specific nutrients are not available to the plant, discoloration, thinning or wilting will take place. These symptoms of nutrient deficiencies are warning signs of the more serious problem taking place within the plant. When you have inadequate levels of available micronutrients the plant struggles with chlorophyll formation, photosynthesis and many other essential plant life-cycle functions, causing the plant to be more susceptible to disease and stress injury.  

Connect with a Plant Food Company representative about incorporating our micronutrient packages and other beneficial supplements into your liquid fertilizers.   

Boron (B) aids in the production of sugars and carbohydrates, while supporting cell division. Boron is an essential nutrient for seed and fruit development.
Copper (Cu) strengthens cell walls and is crucial to reproductive growth. Copper aids in root metabolism while helping to utilize proteins.
Chloride (Cl) aids plant metabolism. 
Iron (Fe) aids in protein synthesis, photosynthesis and is required for chlorophyll synthesis. 
Manganese (Mn) functions with enzyme systems involved in the breakdown of carbohydrates and nitrogen metabolism.  
Molybdenum (Mo) aids in the plant's ability to efficiently utilize nitrogen.
Zinc (Zn) regulates the consumption of sugars, while governing healthy plant growth.  Copper is essential to the transformation of carbohydrates.
