in its report, titled
Agricultural Micronutrients Market, 2021-2028
The report further mentions that the market stood at USD 3.86 billion in 2020. Decreasing arable land and the growing demand for gardening activities is perceived as positive growth factor in the market. According to the Our World in Data Organization, half of the global habitable land is adopted for agricultural purposes. On the other hand, as per the European Commission and Joint Research Center, around 970 million tons of soil is lost due to erosion in the European Union every year.
Agricultural micronutrients are essential elements that are required by plants in small amounts for their growth and development. These micronutrients are also known as trace elements, and they include boron (B), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo), and zinc (Zn).
Each of these micronutrients has a specific role in the plant’s physiological processes. For example, boron is important for cell division and the development of reproductive structures, while copper is involved in photosynthesis and the formation of chlorophyll. Iron is necessary for the formation of enzymes and chlorophyll, and manganese plays a role in photosynthesis, respiration, and nitrogen metabolism.
Molybdenum is important for nitrogen fixation, while zinc is required for the production of enzymes and the development of plant tissues. These micronutrients are typically present in soil and can also be added as fertilizers to support plant growth.
