Micronutrients are essential elements that plants use in minute amounts. Plant nutrition would be compromised if these nutrients were not present, potentially leading to a decrease in plant growth and productivity.

Eight out of seventeen essential elements for plant growth are micronutrients: chlorine (CI), boron (B)  iron (Fe), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn), and nickel (Ni).
