Micronutrients Research Report 2019: Products, Deficiencies, Consumption, Case Studies, Industry Analysis - Zinc, Boron, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Molybdenum, Nickel, Cobalt - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Micronutrients 2019: Products, Deficiencies, Consumption, Case Studies, Industry Analysis (Zinc, Boron, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Molybdenum, Nickel, Cobalt)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report looks at the role of micronutrients in agriculture, the drivers of consumption and how consumption has evolved over the last five years.

The content of each chapter is as follows:

Chapter 1: Introduction

This chapter gives background information relevant to understanding of micronutrients in the environment and in agriculture. Topics include soil and plant chemistry which provide context as to how micronutrients behave and why are they are important to crop growth and agriculture.

Chapter 2: Micronutrient products

Chapter Two outlines the range of products available as sources of micronutrients both widely-used basic industrial substances and more specialised substances used for specific applications.

Chapter 3: Micronutrient deficiencies

This chapter describes the nature of micronutrient deficiencies by element, the crops and regions in which they are found and how they are treated.

Chapter 4: Micronutrient consumption

The chapter on micronutrient consumption provides 2018 figures by region, country and crop. Where possible, segmentation is also provided by states within countries, substance type and application method. Discussions are also provided on drivers of growth in consumption for each country.

Chapter 5: Case study: Zn consumption in the USA

Chapter Five looks at the case of Zn and B consumption in the USA, focusing on its use in commodity crops in the USA Mid-west. Details are given on the drivers of consumption and how consumption has evolved.

Chapter 6: Industry analysis

This chapter looks at the micronutrient industry including companies, governance and technological trends.

Chapter 7: Case studies

The final chapter gives some background information on notable case studies of micronutrient provision and use worldwide.
