Some Methods to Minimize Zinc Deficiency in Transplanted Wetland Rice

A first comparison of land ridging and zinc application; other possibilities
Conference paper


Zinc deficiency of wetland rice generally occurs in two main situations: in calcareous soils, which may or may not be very poorly drained, and in noncalcareous soils that are very poorly drained or remain reduced for long periods by perennial flood irrigation. The present paper deals with the second kind.
