Micronutrients are very much essential for growth, development and reproduction of plants and are required by plants in very small quantities, yet they are very effective in regulating plant growth, development and reproduction due to enzymatic action. Different crops require varied quantities of micronutrients at different growth stages. Multiple cropping with high yielding varieties of crop is one of the most important cause of removal of micronutrients from soil. Under deficiency of micronutrients, the growth of plant is hampered; the plants are subjected to attack by diseases and the yield of crop decreases accordingly. Nutrients can be applied both by conventional methods and by foliar application methods. Foliar application methods make nutrients promptly available, therefore this peculiar mode of feeding make this mode of nutrient application better as compared to soil application.
