Abstract:

Micronutrients are essentially as important as macronutrients to have better growth, yield and quality in plants. The requirement of micronutrients (boron, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, magnesium and molybdenum) is only in traces, which is partly met from the soil or through chemical fertilizer or through other sources. Proper plant nutrition is essential for successful production of fruit crops. Integrated supply of micronutrients with macronutrients in adequate amount and suitable proportions is one of the most important factors that control the plant growth in fruit crops. Micronutrients are involved in all metabolic and cellular functions. Plants differ in their need for micronutrients. In this review, focus on the major functions of mineral micronutrients in fruit production.
