Residual effects of subsoil zinc and oilseed rape genotype on the grain yield and distribution of zinc in wheat locations
Aims

To examine the residual value of zinc to wheat where thr zinc was applied as surface or subsoil application to previous canola.

Key messages
  • Residual subsoil zinc improved root growth and grain yield of wheat in a pot experiment.
  • Canola genotypes did not differ in their effects on the following wheat.
  • A greater proportion of wheat zinc was located in grain where subsoils had received zinc (but it should be noted that these pots had received 3 times the total zinc of the surface zinc pots).
