To examine wheat response to zinc.

Key messages
  • The best yield response by wheat was to zinc. 
  • Zinc induced early maturity and produced better root systems than without zinc.
  • The increase in yield was mainly related to superior root development which in turn had some effect on the severity of eelworm and root rot.
