The Distribution and Correction of Zinc Deficiency

  • Chapter

Part of the Developments in Plant and Soil Sciences book series (DPSS,volume 55)

Abstract

Zinc deficiency is widely reported in agricultural production. Field trial results indicating Zn deficiency have been reported on most major soil types. The distribution of Zn deficiency is commonly assessed in terms of proxies for yield such as soil or plant testing.

The correction of Zn deficiency has focussed on obtaining the maximum improvement of yield. Correction has been demonstrated to have a residual effect benefiting subsequent crops, however the duration of this effect varies with the nature of the soil and cropping system. Depending on the application (usually somewhere between 2.5 and 25 kg Zn ha-1 when inorganic Zn salts are applied to the soil), a Zn application usually ameliorates Zn deficiency for around seven subsequent crops, and on lighter acidic soils it may be for considerably longer.
