There are 16 elements known to be essential for plant growth. Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen are derived from water and carbon dioxide.Phosphorus, Potassium, Sulpher, Calcium, Magnesium, Boron, Chlorine, Copper, Iron, Manganese, and Zinc are derived from the soil.Nutritional requirements for the plants will vary from crop to crop as many factors will affect the nutritional quality of the plants. The major factors affecting the nutrient content of fruits, field crops, vegetables are soil factors, climate, management practices, variety of crops, and the post-harvest methods. So to maintain the nutrition quality of the plants, the nutritional requirements will vary from crop to crop.2Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp COPYRIGHT FREE BACKGROUNDS 2021-07-29T11:27:58+05:30Added an answer on July 29, 2021 at 11:27 am Nutrition Requirements Vary From Crop to CropThe most obvious difference between crops is the protein content and the number of calories in them. Some crops such as maize, soybean, and oats require a lot of calories while other crops such as wheat and quinoa require less. The nutrition requirements also vary depending on what crop they’re from because some – such as those rich in vitamin A – require more of it than others – like those high in vitamin D.1. Implications of not meeting the nutrition requirements in food cropsThe result of not meeting the nutrition requirements in food crops is a decrease in yield, the lack of certain vitamins and minerals, and an increase in environmental costs.Through the use of biotechnology, we can make sure that there is a continual supply for food. By introducing plants into our agricultural system that can produce more yield and have higher nutritional values, we are able to meet the needs for greater populations without sacrificing quality or quantity of food.2. Nutrients required for optimum crop productionNutrients are required for the production of plants. The soil needs to have the right nutrients for crops to grow and turn into a harvestable product.Nitrogen is an important nutrient for plants and vital for their photosynthesis. It also provides them with energy, amino acids necessary to synthesize proteinsAlong with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are also needed so that plants can become strong enough to produce edible fruit or vegetables. Potassium prevents the plant from being over watered while phosphorus, which is not always in short supply, helps with flowering and fruiting3. Requirements of food crops and their implications for human consumptionFood security is a major issue in the world. With climate change and population growth, this will only get worse. The importance of sustainable food production has never been clearer.Soil fertility is the most important factor in crop production, and it is threatened by erosion, pests, disease, and droughts related to climate change. These requirements have implications for human consumption because with a decreased availability of food crops – such as corn or wheat – due to these factors, there will be a higher demand for foods that are able to be grown on these soils.4. Nutritional deficiencies in some food crops and their consequences for human healthOne of the most common causes of nutritional deficiency is malnutrition. Malnutrition is the result of eating an unhealthy diet, and can be caused by eating too few calories, not getting enough different types of nutrients, or both.In recent years, there has been a global rise in cases of malnutrition in developing countries. The problem is partly due to a lack of food production and partly due to poverty. In developed countries, the problem lies with junk food diets or an inability/lack of knowledge on how to cook nutritious meals.Malnutrition can cause serious health problems such as stunting (a type of irreversible growth failure), which reduces a child’s growth rate and height; low weight; delayed development; learning difficulties; skin abnormalities; permanent hearing loss from lack of vitamin A; illnesses such5. The role of the plant tissue culture industry in improving nutrient levels in food cropsOne of the most important roles that the plant tissue culture industry plays is in improving nutrient levels in food crops. The process of extracting and culturing plant cells to produce plantlets is a nutrient-recycling process that has helped improve crop yields, while also improving taste and sustainability. It is also an ongoing discovery process to replicate plant life in artificial media.1Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Add a Video to describe the problem better.
