Speciality Nutrients

India was dependent on external food supplies in the early 1960s. To meet the growing demand for food, the high yielding crop cultivars were introduced. These high yielding crop cultivars were highly responsive to fertilizers. Thus, slowly the soils were exhausted of their nutrients. Application of major NPK nutrientsbecame common, therefore the crops started responding to micronutrient fertilizers.Though the Green Revolution led to food security by increasing the yield of staples, the importance of the nutritional value of diets was undermined. However, in recent times, interest in micronutrient malnutrition has increased gradually. One of the main reasons is the realisation that micronutrient deficient soil also contributes substantially to the global burden of diseases in humans and livestock. Today, we stand committed to building a world where micronutrients are recognised as essential for plant, animal, and human life.

The plant requires seventeen essential nutrients for their optimum growth and development. When a plant needs a certain nutrient element, it shows deficiency symptoms or hunger signs. These symptoms are nutrient specific and show different patterns in different crops for different essential nutrients. Secondary nutrients (sulphur, calcium, and magnesium) are necessary as well. Micronutrients are required in small amounts for the proper functioning of plant metabolism. The absolute or relative absence of any of these nutrients can hamper plant growth; alternatively, too high a concentration can be toxic to the plant or to humans. Visual clues of plant nutrient deficient symptoms can alert farmers and other service providers on the type of nutrient deficiencies in soil. If identified early enough, corrective measures can be taken during the growing season to correct the negative impact of such deficiencies.

High yielding cultivars, Imbalanced use of plant nutrients and non-use of fortified fertilizers are some of the important causes of soil micronutrient deficiency status in India. At present, Analysis of soil and plant samples has indicated that 49% of soils in India are potentially deficient in Znik(Zn), 12% in Ferrous (Fe), 5% in Manganese (Mn), 3% in Copper (Cu), 33% in Boron (B) and 11% in Molybdenum (Mo). Crops grown in most soils in India suffer from deficiencies of one or more micronutrients, even though the soils often contain apparently adequate total amounts of the respective elements. As a key component of agricultural sustainability, balanced nutrition can greatly improve plant health and crop’s yield.  The use of secondary and micronutrients has advantage of balanced nutrition.
