Dear student
 
Macronutrients are nutrients that are required in larger amounts by plants and other living organisms. The following elements are categorized as macronutrients: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, sulfur, and magnesium. 
 
ments required in small quantities for plants to survive are called micronutrients. Sometimes these elements are called trace elements as a way to describe their small quantity. They include boron, chlorine, Magnese, iron, zinc, copper, molybdenum.
