Integrated Nutrient Use Including Zinc for Rice
M. Yaseen, T.Hussain , A. Hakeem and S.Ahmad

Highest paddy and straw yields of Basmati-385 were obtained by the combined application of NPK+GM+ZnSO4. It was closely followed by NPK + GM + ZnSO4. It was observed that Zn application further increased the yields from those obtained by application of NPK + GM + FYM. Combined application of NPK, organic manures (GM or FYM) and Zn significantly increased the nitrogen and potassium concentrations while lowered the phosphorus concentration of paddy and straw. Reductibri in phosphorus was probably due to the antagnostic effect of Zn on P absorption. Results also indicate that Zn-application of soil was better than its foliar spray.
