Zinc is an essential micronutrient and has particular physiological functions in all living systems. Zinc deficiency appears to be the most widespread and frequent micronutrient deficiency problem in crop and pasture plants worldwide, resulting in severe losses in yield and nutritional quality. This book “ZINC IN PLANT NUTRITION: A REVIEW” by Kshama shukla contributes to our better understanding of Zn dynamics in soil and plant systems. The book also contains valuable basic information for a wide people, including scientists, agronomists and students, who are involved in research or education in plant nutrition, plant physiology and soil science.
The book is a revolution in agriculture and agronomy. It is very helpful for the country because you can increase crop production 200-300% by plant density based on my invention nutrition to plant comes from space and not soil. It has been experimentally tried and results are in agreement with our invention. Also fertilizers may not have any role because the nutrition is in plenty as atoms in space.
Nutrition to plant comes from space and not soil volume three describes point to point how and why nutrition is coming as atoms from the surrounding space and is unlimited and that plants can be grown closer and denser and crop production increased two to three times with the same soil. It also tells that adding nutrients and fertilizers to the soil you can not increase the plant population in a given soil meaning fertilizers area a waste.
Nutrition to plant comes from space and not soil volume six describes how nutrition is coming to plant and also to humans from active atoms in space. How plants do not have excreta because they take as much nutrition as needed by them unlike humans who eat and have excreta. Humans absorb these atoms through lungs like oxygen atoms. It also describes evidence for atoms in space like snow on mountains 12 month a year is by combination of Hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Similarly water under the soil is from combination of hydrogen and oxygen atoms like rain. How insulin transports glucose ion in cell that is why in diabetic keto acidosis insulin deficiency person needs fluid and glucose supplementation which he will not need otherwise and be able to survive on atoms from space.
Zinc is an essential nutrient element for plants, animals and Humans. It is involved in several biochemical reactions in plant and its deficiency causes low crop yields. Zinc deficiency is common in many soil types, in general, and its correction is costly because of the wide area of cultivated lands suffering of Zn deficiency. Different plant species as well as plant genotypes differ in their response to low Zn growth substrates. The efficiency of plant genotypes to be grown in low Zn or Zn-deficient growth medium is of a great economic importance. This will help for saving high doses of Zn fertilizers, which of economic benefits and also can prevent soil pollution by heavy load of Zn application. Therefore, the selection of high efficient plant genotypes for cultivation in low-Zn soil will be the future strategy for cultivating plant crops in low-fertile soil. This book represents a study to evaluate the effect of Zn sources and concentrations on the growth, morphological characters and chemical composition of three been cultivars grown on sand culture, and also to estimate the best applications of the two zinc sources.
Nutrition to plant comes from space and not soil Volume four describes how just like oxygen atoms in space there are other atoms of matter utilized by plants , how water underneath the soil originates from combination of Hydrogen and oxygen atoms in space just like rain probably is formed by the same process. Evidence is dew drops forming on the interior of a beaker inverted on a lighted candle Hydrogen atoms burning and combining with oxygen atoms. In summary plant derives nutrition from atoms in space and not soil and crop production can be increased 2-3 times by sowing plants more densely and land saved.
A collection of current knowledge of phytochemicals and health Interest in phenolic phytochemicals has increased as scientific studies indicate these compounds exhibit potential health benefits. With contributions from world leaders in this research area, Plant Phenolics and Human Health: Biochemistry, Nutrition, and Pharmacology offers an essential survey of the current knowledge on the capacity of specific micronutrients present in ordinary diets to fight disease. The coverage in this resource: Explains the presence and biochemical properties of phenolics present in fruits and vegetables, as well as in foods derived from their plant sources Provides biochemical explanations on how certain plant phenolics fight cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and other widespread pathologies Focuses on certain phenolics, e.g., flavonoids, stilbenes, and curcuminoids, and provides insights on the biochemical bases used to define their significance in the diet as well as their recommended consumption requirements and toxicity Appropriate for graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses in human and animal nutrition, basic nutritional biology, physiology, pharmacology, and other health-related disciplines, Plant Phenolics and Human Health: Biochemistry, Nutrition, and Pharmacology serves as both an invaluable supplementary classroom text and a self-teaching guide for professionals interested in defining the association between diet and health from classical, alternative, and complementary biomedical perspectives.
Judicious use of fertilizer is a serious feature in allowing crops to recognize their full yield potential. It is an unfriendly and expensive practice to use chemicals against vector. The resistance of plants to diseases is mainly related to genetics. However, the ability of the plant to express its induced resistance to a particular disease is affected by mineral nutrition. Nutrient elements either single or combined application of boron with zinc had significant effect in reducing viral diseases in winter mungbean. It appears that resistance or tolerance of plant is metabolically boosted up by the application of nutrients. Use of resistant crop varieties is regarded as an economical and durable method for controlling plant diseases especially those caused by viruses. Epidemiological factors play an ideal role in the development of ULCV.
The book can be used as a text for undergraduate courses or as a self-study guide for interested botanists. The book follows botany as it moves through different botany branches. The text deals with principles and is not a review of recent literature. The book has knowledge about plant anatomy, physiology, ecology and taxanomy. Because plant anatomy is often no longer taught at universities, chapters review root, stem, and leaf anatomy. Numbers of tables and figures are included in the book to facilitate understanding and comprehension of the information presented throughout the text.
It is unexpected to found nutrition and treatment in a single plant, and this is what is not known to many people about plant ( Medicago sativa) alfalfa where they considered the plant as only as a source of food for the animals, but there are many medical and nutritional benefits for Medicago sativa recited inside the book chapters and confirmed by researches. There are many approaches to uses of Medicago sativa, but this book focuses on just one. My general title reflects both the description of the plant in general and its antimicrobial effect.you will surprise when you read and know that this staple crop is now being developed as a source of human food extracts, pharmaceuticals, enzymes, industrial chemicals, and bio fuels.
Nutrition to plant comes from space and not soil Volume two is a revolution in agriculture and biology. It covers point to point how matter atoms from space and why they are being utilized by plants. These matter atoms percolate in to soil and water and are sucked by plants. The basic principle is soil does not loose weight as the plant grows. The role of soil is probably as a catalyst in the process of fixing nutrient atoms. Other main points are soil is insoluble in water and nothing can be eluted from it to be utilized. Also carbon dioxide in air does not have any energy as it can not burn and thus can not be part of photosynthesis.
Cadmium is a highly toxic heavy metal for both plants and animals. The presence of cadmium in soil is of great concern regarding its entry into food chain. Wheat is a staple food in many parts of the world including Pakistan. It accumulates more Cd as compared to other cereal crops. A number of approaches are being used to minimize Cd accumulation in edible plant parts. Proper plant nutrition is one of the good strategies to minimize damaging effects of cadmium on plants and to decrease its accumulation in edible plant parts. A pot experiment was conducted on wheat in a soil contaminated with Cd @ 30 mg kg-1. Zinc was applied using two different application methods i.e., soil applications (Zn @ 15 & 30 mg kg-1) and foliar applications (0.3 & 0.6% ZnSO4 solution) compared to control (without Zn but Cd). Results indicated that foliar application of 0.3% ZnSO4 solution increased the activity of antioxidant enzymes (catalase, ascorbat peroxidase and guiacol peroxidase) and effectively decreased grain-Cd concentration. Zinc application through both the methods increased the shoot and grain Zn, P and K concentrations as compared to control.

Availability of good quality irrigation water in sufficient quantities is becoming serious threat to world crop production. Several soil, plant and climatic factors influence Zinc availability and uptake by crops. Farmers generally apply ground water of different SAR. We evaluated the effect of Zinc (Zn) application on shoot growth and shoot Zn concentration and uptake by two maize cultivars (Hybrid: FHY-993 and Synthetic: C-20) on a loam soil irrigated with water of different sodium adsorption ratio (SAR) levels. The result of present study indicated the importance of the Zn nutritional status of plants in improving salt stress condition. Adequate Zn nutrition is, therefore, important for the maintenance of good growth and yield under sodic condions. The objective of present research was to asses the response of maize to Zn application irrigated with water of different SAR levels.
