About this book

This book addresses biochemical and physiological roles of micronutrients in plants and the diverse ways in which they react to limitations in micronutrients supply, contributing to global constraints in crop production. The book is presented in two parts. Part I deals with roles of micronutrients and the changes induced in plants in response to their inadequate supply. Part II addresses the factors contributing to micronutrients deficiency, their diagnosis, evaluation and management through soil- and plant-based approaches.


PART I: ROLES AND DEFICIENCY RESPONSES; * General; Micronutrients as Essential Plant Nutrients; Micronutrients and the Periodic Table; General Functions of Micronutrients; * Iron; * Manganese; * Copper; * Zinc; * Molybdenum; * Boron; * Chlorine; PART II: OCCURRENCE, EVALUATION AND AMELIORATION OF DEFICIENCIES; * Causes and Spread of Deficiencies; General; Iron Deficiency; Manganese Deficiency; Copper Deficiency; Zinc Deficiency; Molybdenum Deficiency; Boron Deficiency; Chlorine Deficiency; * Evaluation of Deficiencies; General; Foliar Symptoms; Plant Analysis; Soil Tests; Biochemical and Other Tests; Crop Response; * Amelioration of Deficiencies; General; Micronutrient Amendments; Use of Micronutrient Efficient Genotypes; * References.
