Course Description:

Even though plants require Molybdenum (Mo) and Nickel (Ni) in very low quantities, both nutrients play a critical role in plant growth and development. Molybdenum is essential for the synthesis and activation of the nitrate reductase enzyme and is also needed by root nodule bacteria for Nitrogen (N) fixation in legume crops. Nickel is important for the production of the urease enzyme, which is essential for Urea hydrolysis.  In this course we will gain a deeper understanding of the role these two minor nutrients play in plant nutrition and learn how to manage their deficiencies.
