To determine rate and timing of zinc for durum wheat.

Key messages
  • Over a five year period incorporating either foliar or seed coated zinc increased wheat grain zinc concentration above soil applied zinc fertiliser.
  • Neither timing or application type (on seed, in soil or foliar) or rate had any effect on grain yield, protein or screenings at this site.
  • Copper was applied every two years in some treatments but it had no apparent effect on grain yields or grain or tissue copper concentrations.
