Description

Micronutrients such as boron (B), chloride (Cl), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), and zinc (Zn) are essential plant nutrients taken up by crops in very small amounts, but a deficiency can have profound effects on yield because they perform important physiological functions. Deficiencies seldom are observed or are widespread in Iowa and neighboring states. Farmers and crop consultants have been asking questions, however, concerning possible yield loss due to deficiency of micronutrients in corn and soybean.
