Plants are uniquely able to create their own food through photosynthesis, using the sun’s energy to synthesize glucose from carbon dioxide and water. Plants also extract from the air and soil 16 chemical elements that are essential for nutrition, growth and survival.
Non-mineral elements – carbon, hydrogen and oxygen – come from the air and water. Beyond irrigation, growers can do little to influence the availability of the non-mineral elements that nature provides. Mineral elements dissolved in water are taken from the soil.
Mineral elements are grouped as macro- and micronutrients, according to their volume consumed by plants and their necessity for plant life.
Micronutrients are mineral elements consumed in trace amounts that are essential for robust growth and health, but generally not for survival.
Macronutrients are present in plant tissues in quantities from 0.2-0.4 percent of dry weight while micronutrients are measured in parts per million, ranging from 5-200 ppm.
