    Abstract

    THE aims of the study were to determine the extent and severity of micronutrient deficiencies for the production of the food legume crops, black gram, green gram, peanut and soybean, in four regions of Thailand (north, northeast, central and southeast), and to develop procedures for their diagnosis, prediction and correction in farmers' crops. The importance of macronutrient deficiencies in legume crop production was also explored and procedures for their diagnosis developed. The study has shown that a high proportion of legume crops in Thailand suffer from one or more deficiencies of the micronutrients boron (B) and molybdenum (Mo) and the macronutrients phosphorus (P), potassium (K), sulfur (S), and nitrogen (N).
