Though mostly ignored, micronutrients are most important. Reducing the negative effects of micronutrient shortages requires the use of effective techniques like vitamin supplements and dietary diversification. It is known that when agricultural yields are reduced because of inadequate soil micronutrient concentration, malnutrition may result. Deficits in soil micronutrients can result from a number of variables, such as the use of intensive cropping practices, micronutrient leaching, soil characteristics, and decreased use of farmyard waste. The availability of micronutrients in the soil is determined by a number of factors, including soil pH, and status of the soil organic matters. Numerous factors, including the structure of root hairs, the release of organic acids, sugar, and several root enzymes, as well as interactions between microorganisms and plants, affect how well plants absorb and use micronutrients. Numerous studies have been carried out to investigate the soil's micronutrient absorption and bioavailability. In order to improve crop utilisation of soil nutrients, the discussion also included an analysis of the relationships between plant functions and soil nutrients.
