Effect of added phosphate and zinc on their availability and uptake, and on yield of pearl millet in presence of calcium carbonate and farmyard manure






Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science 32(2): 684-689

Effect of added phosphate and zinc on their availability and uptake, and on yield of pearl millet in presence of calcium carbonate and farmyard manure

In a greenhouse experiment on a sandy non-calcareous soil, the effect of P and Zn, in the absence or presence of CaCO3 and FYM, on the yield and P and Zn uptake of bajra (pearl millet) was studied. The yield was increased by P application and still more by a combined application of P and Zn, although Zn alone gave no yield increase. Increasing soil levels of P and Zn increased their concentrations and uptake in the plants, but more than 50 ppm P had an antagonistic effect on Zn nutrition.
