“Worldwide, millions of hectares of arable land are deficient in plant available Zn and other trace elements such as Cu, Fe and Mn.” (Stacey et al 2007)

“….With one third of the world’s population at risk from zinc deficiency, it is important to ensure that crops such as cereals have not only sufficient zinc for optimum yields but also that they can supply a useful amount of dietary zinc to human consumers…… farm livestock and people also require an adequate supply of zinc and around one third of the world’s human population (> 2 x109) are possibly at risk of zinc deficiency.” (Alloway 2004)
