The tomato is the most important vegetable crop in the world and the second most important in Brazil. However, it is considered a high-risk crop because of the necessity for high capital investment along with high susceptibility to biotic and abiotic factors. One cause of damage is Blossom-End Rot (BER), a physiological disorder related to calcium (Ca) deficiency. Although BER is attrib...
Elements currently considered micronutrients, nickel (Ni) was the last to have proven its essentiality. Its only function recognized is related to urease activity, however, presents range very narrow between critical and toxic levels. Also in the soil, the Ni addition does not show constant results, varying mainly as to environment, the plant species and the source by which it was appli...
Potatoes are the most consumed vegetable by humans. As potato tubers develop into the soil, potatoes are usually grown on very sandy soils that cause leaching of many soluble nutrients, especially nitrogen (N). Potato root system is shallow and inefficient in absorbing nutrients, which demands high doses of N to supply the need of the crop. There is evidence that nickel (Ni) can benefic...
