Nutritional quality of food is critical role to improving human health. Even mild micronutrient deficiencies in foods have negative health consequences. Finding ways to address micronutrient deficiencies is central to meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The micronutrient content in plant foods depends on their content in the soil. One of the ways to increase the supply of these nutrients (when the content in the soil is low) is to add them when growing the plants. The experiment was carried out in order to investigate the effect of the introduction of micronutrients Zn, Cu and Co in different variants in the cultivation of carrots, beets and cabbage. It was carried out under irrigated conditions. The use of microfertilizers has an ambiguous effect on micronutrient content in vegetables. Zn content slightly increased in cabbage, but almost unchanged in carrots and beets. Cu content increased in cabbage and beets, but almost unchanged in carrots. Co content increased in carrots, beets and cabbage. The use of microfertilizers has increased the yield of vegetables.
