Aims

The objective of this experiment, conducted at two sites in 2012, was to assess the response of wheat to zinc and/or copper plus some other micronutrient supplement mixtures in a standard cropping system.

Key messages

Neither zinc, boron, copper or molybdenum applied to wheat on these two sites showed any significant effect on grain yield. The late application of zinc increased grain Zn content, but no other nutrient concentrations were noted due to the application of micronutrients.
