Direct and residual effects of S and Zn on yield and their uptake in an Indian mustard - maize cropping system



Direct and residual effects of S and Zn on yield and their uptake in an Indian mustard - maize cropping system



Acta Agronomica Hungarica 46(4): 327-334



Field experiments were conducted on a Fatehpur loamy sand (Typic ustochrepts) to study the effect of S and Zn application on Indian mustard and its residual effect on a subsequent maize crop. Indian mustard responded significantly to S and Zn applications. The highest grain yield was obtained when 20 kg S ha-1 was applied along with 11.0 kg Zn ha-1 with an increase of 45.3% over the control, while the application of S and Zn alone resulted in 30.6% and 22.7% increases in the yield. The oil content of mustard seed also increased by 2.0% after the combined application of S and Zn. A portion of the applied nutrients remained in the soil, significantly increasing the grain yield and the uptake of S and Zn in the subsequent maize crop. The residual effects of S and Zn should be considered when applying fertilizers to crops.
