Zinc Deficiency in Crops
Zinc is one of many important micronutrients required by plants. It helps with almost everything the plant needs from growing, generating food, fighting diseases, and much more. A lack of zinc in a plant means it cannot complete any of these to it's full potential, making zinc deficiency in plants very detrimental to the plants' health, and overall performance.
What Does Zinc Deficiency Look Like?
Luckily, a zinc deficiency is pretty easy to notice. When your crops are beginning to wilt or droop at the ends of the leaves, appear to have a yellowish discoloration, and seem to not be growing as they should, then there's a good chance they have a zinc deficiency. You can verify this by performing soil tests on where your crops are planted.
How to Treat Zinc Deficiency
The answer to that is relatively simple. You just need to restore the crop's zinc level to normal. However, this doesn't necessarily make it a super simple process, as it will be different for each case. There are a few ways to restore zinc in the crops and soil, depending on how you would like to approach it. One way of going about it is by supplementing the required zinc by mixing zinc micronutrient solutions into your water or fertilizer.
