Micronutrients and macronutrients - why is their presence in the soil so carefully studied
Elements, the incorporation in soil does not exceed trace amounts, are called microelements. Soil analysis for micronutrients allows us to identify their contents.
increase or Decrease the content of soil trace elements is reflected in the number of agricultural products for human consumption. The role of trace elements is very large. Their presence ensures the normal functioning of the human body. A lack, but an excess of certain minerals can cause severe illness.
there are also toxic trace elements, the content of which even in small quantities can cause intoxication and disease. Such lead, mercury, cadmium. On land located near major highways and industrial plants, analysis of soil for trace elements will help to establish the concentration of major pollutants of the environment.
the Chemical elements assimilable by plants in large quantities are called macronutrients. Soil analysis for macronutrients will allow you to set their contents.
Inadequate amount or excess of certain micronutrients or macronutrients can cause disease of plants and animals. To remedy the situation is enough to do the soil analysis for the macronutrients or micronutrients and to make the missing elements or elements that neutralize the excess concentrations.
Some of the diseases caused by lack or excess of microelements in the soil
Metabolism is associated with the presence of microelements in the organism. Studies have identified patterns associated with the concentration of a particular element. The animals on the activity of growth is affected by manganese, zinc and iodine in the vegetation - boron, manganese, zinc and copper. Plants have traced the impact on the reproduction of manganese, copper and molybdenum in animals manganese, zinc and iodine. After a soil analysis for trace elements can be made into animal feed missing trace. For normal growth of plants developed controlled release.
the Excess of boron in plants causes chlorosis, lesions and rot the root collar. Lack of micronutrients that causes these consequences:
- Bohr - виноградf withered blossoms, pear and Apple trees are dying, the buds withered cabbage;
- of copper there is a violation of fruit formation in citrus and herbs;
- molybdenum inhibition of the formation of flowers in legumes and cauliflower.
the Tests performed with the purpose of increasing the fertility of the soil
the company "Guild Engineering" carried out the soil analysis for the macronutrients and micronutrients. Also performed soil analysis for fertility. At the customer's request can be performed basic analysis, including the identification of 6 parameters (pH, humus content, potassium, phosphorus, nitrate nitrogen and ammonium nitrogen), advanced (the baseline analysis plus the determination of the total salinity and chlorides, magnesium, calcium and sodium) and the maximum. When the maximum is determined by analysis of all indicators advanced analysis, as well as the content of manganese, cobalt, copper and zinc.
making soil analysis for micronutrients, it is possible to select appropriate micronutrient fertilizers. The symptoms of excess and lack of macro is somewhat similar, therefore, to clarify the situation need to do the analysis on the macro. For example, excess nitrogen inhibits plant growth, reduces yields, leading to high concentrations of nitrates, which leads to spoilage of the crop. The lack of a sensitive culture.
