Nitrogen is the main plant protein component and is needed in large quantities for healthy plant growth. Nitrogen deficiency can lead to root disease, reduced photosynthesis, stunted plants and reduced crop yield, while sufficient nitrogen can increase tolerance to early-season soil diseases.
Copper is essential for photosynthesis and facilitates enzyme production for carbohydrate and protein metabolism. The nutrient influences pollen formation, viability and fertilization, thus affecting fruit set. Low levels of copper in acidic soils can lead to an accelerated uptake of manganese that could be toxic to the plant. Copper sprays can be used to manage bacterial and fungal diseases in fruiting crops.
