Short Communications


Influence of iron-zinc interrelationships on the dry matter yield of rice and total uptake of iron and zinc was studied in a greenhouse experiment on a lateritic soil from Dapoli. Maharashtra. A significant influence of zinc alone was observed on the yield. Iron and zinc either alone or in combination have significantly influenced uptake of Fe and Zn. Highest yield was recorded due to the addition of 10 ppm Fe and 10 ppm Zn at which highest uptake of Zn was noted.
