A typical analysis reports 64.3 ppm
- Zinc is essential for many different enzyme systems in plants
- Zinc is important for synthesizing nucleic acids
- Zinc is utilized in metabolizing the hormone Auxin
A typical analysis reports 29 ppm.
- Has a role in biosynthesis
- Impacts metabolic pathways
- Improves plasma membrane integrity
- Impacts the uptake of sugar
A typical analysis reports 13.5 ppm.
Enzyme activator, notably nitrogen reductase, and for certain protein forming and Vitamin A forming enzymes; an essential part of photosynthesis.
A typical analysis reports 22.3 ppm.
Root nodule bacteria is required to fix nitrogen and therefore the presence or absence of Co has a direct bearing on legume plants. Enzyme activator, helps form vitamin B12; improves growth, water movement and photosynthesis; boll production in cotton.
A typical analysis reports 3.2 ppm
Some chemical forms of iodine appear to stimulate various plants. For example iodate, not iodide, stimulates the growth of a wide range of plants.
A typical analysis reports 200 ppm
Manganese is involved in activating several enzyme systems, photosynthesis and protein synthesis
A typical analysis reports12.6 ppm
- Necessary for nitrogen fixation
- Used by the enzyme systems nitrogenase and nitrate reductase
- Involved in nitrogen metabolism; similarly stimulates plant vigor.
- An important part of chlorophyll
- Essential for iron and phosphate metabolism
A typical analysis reports 2.6 ppm
The most recent element added to the essential trace element list. Pecans are among plants known to require Ni for fruit production.
A typical analysis reports 1.1 ppm
At very low concentrations, it has has been known to stimulate plant growth. At high concentrations it is toxic to plants.
A typical analysis reports 0.79 ppm
Selenium is essential for animals and for bacteria, including the nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Essentiality in higher plants is controversial.
A typical analysis reports 2.9 ppm
Inorganic tin is generally unavailable to plants, absorbed by root hairs and generally not redistributed elsewhere in the plant. Conclusive studies have not been made.
A typical analysis reports 7.8 ppm
Essential for the formation of chlorophyll in several forms of algae (lower plants). Its role in higher plants is not yet clear.
A typical analysis reports 26 ppm
Tungsten interacts with molybedum and at < 5 ppm W has been reported to have a positive impact on a variety of higher plants.
