Response of corn to micronutrients (Zn and Cu) on a saline soil. 1. Growth and ionic relationships

Response of corn to micronutrients (Zn and Cu) on a saline soil. 1. Growth and ionic relationships

Plant and Soil 48(3): 719-724

Response of maize to Zn and Cu on a salinized soil in pots was studied. Zn increased the dry wt. of tops and roots at all levels of NaCl + CaCl2. Increasing Zn level increased the wt. considerably at 10 mM NaCl + CaCl2. Cu increased the wt. of tops at 10 mM NaCl + CaCl2; it had little effect on plant wt. at 50-125 mM NaCl + CaCl2. The growth response of plants to low Cu was somewhat similar to that of higher Zn. NaCl + CaCl2 treatments, in general, increased Zn conc. in tops as well as roots.
