The effect of foliar and soil applied molybdenum treatments on the molybdenum concentration of maize grain

The effect of foliar and soil applied molybdenum treatments on the molybdenum concentration of maize grain

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 16(82): 761-764

Soil and foliar application of Mo to raise the Mo content in maize grain were compared. Both methods raised Mo concentrations in the grain and leaves, but the foliar sprays were more effective. Spraying when the maize plants were 80 cm tall increased the Mo content in the grain more than earlier spraying when the plants were only 30 cm tall. None of the treatments affected grain yield or the N content in the grain or leaves.
