Critical plant and seed concentrations of phosphorus and zinc for predicting response of faba beans (Vicia faba) locations
Aims

To determine critical shoot and seed phosphorus and zinc concentrations for maximum yield in faba bean.

Key messages
  • Grain yields were increased 20-30% by the soil or foliar application of zinc, provided that phosphorus was also supplied.
  • Critical zinc concentrations determined in the glasshouse and field were the same, being 19-24 mg/kg throughout the life of the crop and 13-15 mg/kg zinc in grain.
