Molybdenum is essential for nitrogen metabolism in citrus production.
Effects on yield and leaf-N content
In trials carried out in Egypt, nitrate reductase activity increased with increasing rates of Mo. It was demonstrated that 6mg/tree of molybdenum improved mandarin yields by 44% and helped increase leaf-N contents.
Molybdenum is essential for nitrogen metabolism, where it is a key component of the enzyme nitrate reductase, which catalyzes the first step of the conversion of nitrate-N into plant N compounds. Its deficiency can significantly reduce N metabolism and tree growth, resulting in lower yields and poor quality.
