Role of NutrientImportant. Element of Nitrogen reductese enzymes
Soil in which deficiency is prominentLess common in any kind of soils, rare deficiency
Effects of DeficiencyInhibit development of plant parts & flowers due to less nitrogen metabolisation
Symptoms of DeficiencyYellowing of leaves & necrosis of leaf edges
Copper is necessary for carbohydrate and nitrogen metabolism, so inadequate copper results in stunting of plants. Copper also is required for lignin synthesis which is needed for cell wall strength and prevention of wilting. Deficiency symptoms of copper are dieback of stems and twigs, yellowing of leaves, stunted growth and pale green leaves that wither easily.
