Effect of seed manganese content on the growth of wheat locations

To establish the importance of seed manganese to growth in wheat

Key messages
  • Demonstrated a strong dependence of wheat seedlings linseed manganese supply.
  • Real manganese uptake can only be calculated if the initial seed manganese content is known.
  • Seed soaking in manganese sulphate prior to selling greatly increase the seed manganese content although less than 20% of this manganese was recovered in the seedlings after 26 days.
