Should iron be considered a macro nutrient?

Recommended Posts

Macronutrients and micronutrients are named this way because plants require far less iron (micronutrient) for example than nitrogen or phosphorus (macronutrients). It's not that macronutrients are required and micronutrients are optional. Both are required for a plant's processes. It is just the amount that plants require that separates the two.
