Micronutrients in Agriculture UAM Group


The group of Micronutrients in Agriculture has worked for more than 30 years in designing, characterizing and studying the effectiveness of new fertilisers containing micronutrients. From Fe, Zn and Mn chelates to complexes and other secondary products with complexing properties. Besides these studies in metal micronutrients, in the recent years new research lines have been stablished studying the effect of silicon and other biostimulants against nutrient deficiencies in plants.
