AbstractPlant growth requires the incorporation of elements (nutrients) into plant organs. In non-woody plants, 15–20% of fresh weight is made from such elements, the rest being water. There are two criteria to consider an element as essential. First, an element is essential if a plant cannot complete its lifecycle (till viable seeds) in its absence. Second, an element is essential if necessary to synthesise molecules that cannot be replaced by other element(s) (for example, N in proteins). In natural ecosystems, soil-nutrient availability is rather heterogeneous, and plants may adapt their growth to nutrients taken up by roots exploring a determined soil volume. In agricultural areas, the situation is different. Lack of or excess nutrients are frequent, owing to soil characteristics (which may immobilise nutrients) or to growers’ applications, respectively.
