mineral nutrition has a great significant role in agriculture and horiculture. explain.

The cultivated crops in agriculture derive their nutrients from the soil.
Their growth and development greatly depends upon the mineral salt uptake by the plant. These minerals regulate their physiologic activities like photosynthesis ( by Mangenese), formation of chlorophyll ( by Magnesium) & growth ( by NPK : Nitrogen; Phosphorus; Potassium)
Any increase or decrease in the concentration of minerals in plant body may lead to stunted growth , low yield and discoloration.
