It should be known that zinc is an element that is necessary for the plant in small and vital amounts. So it has made physiological activities of the plant possible. These activities play an important role in the process of photosynthesis and sugar formation, protein synthesis, fertility, growth and disease resistance. When zinc deficiency occurs, these physiological activities are impaired. When the health and fertility of the plant is affected, it causes the crop quality to decline.
Product name: Zinc Sulfate
Chemical formula: ZnSO4
Analysis of this chemical
Micronutrient zinc sulfate and agriculture
Among the major micronutrients, zinc sulfate has many benefits, making it very easy to detect its deficiencies in products. Soil and leaf decomposition usually give good results in terms of the possibility of deficiency. When nutrients deficiency occurs or the plant is exposed to deficiency, there are several methods for effective recovery. The solubility of zinc sulfate is highly dependent on soil ph.
Zinc-deficient soils will affect the plant. Corn, wheat, rice, soybeans, chickpeas, sorghum, citrus fruits and grapes are susceptible to deficiency. Citrus trees in southern and northern Iran are more sensitive to zinc deficiency than other fruit trees such as apples, pears and peaches.
Some agricultural products that are resistant to zinc deficiency include carrots, vegetables and barley.
zinc sulfate usage in industry
