The Benefits of Copper

Essential for the formation of chlorophyll and is vital in several enzyme systems. Copper also promotes the development of strong cell walls, enhances electron transportation, oxidation reactions, pollen viability, seed set and, by affecting the chemical composition of cell walls, can affect lignification.

Deficiency Systems

A copper deficiency can reduce the respiration and pores of the plant, effecting the use of water efficiency. In cereals deficiencies often appears as the wilting of leaf tips, shrunken white heads with gaps and no grain. This is often caused by sterile pollen and the delay in maturity. In maize it appears as shoot death, low yielding and patchy crops and the young leaves show weathering on the tip. In horticultural crops and vegetables it often appears in the wilting of plants or the deforming of leafs such as curling, cupping or leaf limpness.
