Keywords:

  • boron, chlorine, manganese, nickel - acquisition and utilization, by plants;
  • crops, improved micronutrient use efficiency - plant, and environmental processes;
  • optimized micronutrient status - maximal productivity, optimal crop quality;
  • boron, in soils and plants - occurrence of global deficiencies;
  • boron uptake, passively mediated - at odds, with other observed differences in uptake;
  • within-plant transport - long-distance transport of boron, and transpiration;
  • behavior of copper in soils - poorly understood, copper deficiency not easily predicted from soil type;
  • inter- and intracellular copper transport - and homeostasis;
  • inter- and intracellular - manganese transport and homeostasis;
  • manipulating plant nickel uptake - cell distribution and remobilization
