Significant growth expected in the soil segment 

In 2016, the soil segment accounted for the largest share, by mode of application, in the Agricultural Micronutrients Market in terms of value and volume. Soil application is the most widely used owing to its easy application; it also requires less time and labor to apply micronutrients directly in the soil. As micronutrients come in direct contact with the roots of the crop when applied to the soil, they are more effective and result in high yield and productivity.
