What are micro-nutrients?

Micronutrients, also known as trace elements, required for healthy plant growth are: calcium, magnesium, sulfur, boron, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc.  Deficiencies of the micronutrients will result in the increase of pests, mold, and fungi, as well as disease and possible crop failure. Traditional farming can sometimes strip the soil of trace elements. This is why it is important to replenish the soil with organic material that helps to bring the nutritional balance back.
