LDSF Extractable Copper
An essential component of most biochemical processes copper (Cu) enhances photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation, flowering, fruiting and maturation. Specifically it has been shown to stimulate root development, increase plant stem and stalk strength, improve flower formation and seed production, improve crop maturity, increase nitrogen fixation capacity, increase resistance to plant diseases (Fageria 2009). There were no indications of Cu limitation except for a few predicted outliers on the steep slopes of the upper watershed.
