PLANT DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS & 16 ELEMENTS REQUIRED

Plant deficiency symptoms and its essential elements.

You can also identify this in soil-less farming. too!

PLANT NUTRIENTS DEFIECIENCY SYMPTOMS Agriculture Novel

MACRO-NUTRIENTS:

These elements contribute maximum to the plant’s whole metabolism depends on these elements.

  1. Nitrogen (N)Nitrogen deficiency symptoms Agriculture Novel

Part of a large number of necessary organic compounds, including amino acids, proteins, co-enzymes, nucleic acids, and chlorophyll.

Deficiency Symptoms- Shriveled light green new leaves.

 

  1. Phosphorus(P)

Phosphorus deficiency symptoms Agriculture Novel

Part of many important organic compounds, including sugar phosphates, ATP, nucleic acids, phospholipids, and certain coenzymes

Deficiency Symptoms- leaves are darker than usual.

 

 

  1. Potassium(K)Potassium deficiency symptoms Agriculture Novel

Acts as a coenzyme or activator for many enzymes (e.g., pyruvate kinase). Protein synthesis requires high potassium levels. Potassium does not form a stable structural part of any molecules inside the plant cells.

Deficiency Symptoms- brown spots & yellowing on tips and edges of leaves.

MICRONUTRIENTS:

Comparatively less amount required than macronutrients

  1. Sulfur(S)

Incorporated into several organic compounds including amino acids and proteins. Coenzyme A and the vitamins thiamine and biotin contain sulfur.Sulphur deficiency symptoms Agriculture Novel

Deficiency Symptoms – leaves tend to be smaller.

 

 

 

  1. Magnesium(Mg)

Magnesium deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelAn essential part of the chlorophyll molecule and required for activation of many enzymes, including those involved in ATP bond breakage. Essential to maintain ribosome structure.

Deficiency Symptoms- lower leaves start turning yellow from outside.

 

  1. Calcium(Ca)

Calcium deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelOften precipitates as crystals of calcium oxalate in vacuoles. Found in cell walls as calcium pectate, which cements together primary walls of adjacent cells. Required to maintain membrane integrity and

is part of the enzyme α-amylase. Sometimes interferes with the ability of magnesium to activate enzymes

Deficiency Symptoms- deformed and stunted new leaves.

 

  1. Iron(Fe)

Iron deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelRequired for chlorophyll synthesis and is an essential part of the cytochromes, which act as electron carriers in photosynthesis and respiration. Is an essential part of ferredoxin and possibly nitrate reductase. Activates certain other enzymes.

Deficiency Symptoms- new leaves are yellow or white.

 

  1. Chlorine(Cl)

Required for photosynthesis, where it acts as an enzyme activator during the production of oxygen from water. Additional functions are suggested by the effects of deficiency on roots

Deficiency Symptoms- leaf spots and stunted growth.

 

  1. Manganese(Mn)

Manganese deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelActivates one or more enzymes in fatty acid synthesis, the enzymes responsible for DNA and RNA formation, and the enzyme isocitrate dehydrogenase in the Krebs cycle. Participates directly in the photosynthetic production of O2 from H2O and may be involved in chlorophyll formation.

Deficiency Symptoms- yellow spots and holes between the leaves.

  1. Boron(B)

Role in plants not well understood. May be required for carbohydrate transport in the phloem

Deficiency Symptoms- generally stunted and distortion of growing tip death.

  1. Zinc(Zn)

Zinc deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelRequired for the formation of the hormone indoleacetic acid. Activates the enzymes alcohol dehydrogenase, lactic acid dehydrogenase, glutamic acid dehydrogenase, and carboxypeptidase

Deficiency Symptoms- near veins yellowing occurs(at base ).

 

 

 

 

  1. Copper(Cu)

Copper deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelActs as an electron carrier and as part of certain enzymes. Part of plastocyanin, which is involved in photosynthesis, and also of polyphenol oxidase and possible nitrate reductase. May be involved in N2 fixation.

Deficiency Symptoms- first starts as cupping and slight chlorosis of either whole leaves or new leaves.

 

  1. Molybdenum(Mo)

Molybdenum deficiency symptoms Agriculture NovelActs as an electron carrier in the conversion of nitrate to ammonium and is also essential for N2 fixation

Deficiency Symptoms-chlorosis and necrosis.

 

 

  1. Carbon(C)

A constituent of all organic compounds found in plants

  1. Hydrogen(H)

A constituent of all organic compounds of which carbon is a constituent. Important in cation exchange in plant–soil relations

  1. Oxygen(O)

A constituent of many organic compounds in plants. Only a few organic compounds, such as carotene, do not contain oxygen. Also involved in anion exchange between roots and the external medium. It is a terminal acceptor of H+ in aerobic respiration.
