Status of Micronutrients Uptake by Soil and Tomato Plants - An Analysis

Rita Bajpai [3]

Abstract: Necessary tools to identify optimal concentrations of essential elements required for plant growth is analysis of soil1, 2. Some essential elements affects the fertility of soil are copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn) and Iron (Fe) are known as micronutrients. The micronutrients 9, 10, 11 most commonly tested in laboratories. Crop responses to micronutrient fertilization are uncommon in the certain well-defined situations. This paper including the status of micronutrients in the soil and ash of tomato plants. In soil samples of tomato plant the concentration of Fe, Cu, and Mn was 3.016ppm, 0.365 ppm 16.75ppm and in tomato plant ash the concentration was 0.411ppm, 0.326ppm and 12.06ppm respectively.

Keywords: Tools, micronutrients, plant ash, optimal concentration, essential elements
