Course Description:

Manganese (Mn), despite its critical role in sustaining plant photosynthetic activity, often gets overlooked when designing a fertility program. While a plant only requires a very small quantity of Mn, it plays a vital role in the physiological processes of the plant. This lecture will review the role of Mn in plant nutrition and discuss how to prevent a Mn deficiency to achieve optimal crop yield and quality. Additionally, this lecture will discuss methods to effectively incorporate Mn into a fertility program to ensure maximum effectiveness.
