    Tomato is being grown over 2000 acres of Bengaluru Rural District and surrounding areas where soils are deficient in micronutrients like Zinc, Boron and Iron. The farmers are using only major nutrients (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium), and are unaware of the role of micronutrients. Therefore, they are getting lesser profit due to reduced yield and harvesting low quality fruits with less preference in the market. This is where ‘Vegetable Special’ can come to the rescue of tomoto growers. It contains micronutrients such as Zinc, Iron, Boron, Copper and Manganese and is best used as foliar spray in tomato crop
