Crops and Soils Magazine has a good article on micronutrients by Matt Nillson. I plan to use it as a reference frequently for nutrient information. His article says that soil testing is only part of the picture with micronutrients. He advocates regular tissue testing as well. Using a targeted approach will help to identify deficiencies and correct them. One caution would be that deficiencies can be caused by physical problems as well as nutrient shortage.
