The Effect of Increasing Nitrogen Doses on the Zinc Content of Maize Plant in the Soils of Different Properties

Sevinc Adiloglu and M. Turgut Saglam

Abstract:
This research was carried out in order to determine the effect of increasing nitrogen fertilizer doses on the zinc uptake of maize plant in the soils of different physical and chemical properties. For this purpose sandy acid, clay acid, sandy calcareous, clay calcareous and loam neutral soils were used in this research. According to the results pH values of the soil samples were between 4.99 and 8.31; organic matter amounts were between 0.80 and 1.92%; CaCO3 contents were between 0.00 and 12.10% ; CEC values were between 17.66 and 28.74 cmol kg-1; available phosphorus were between 51.8 and 123.7 kg P2O5 ha-1 available zinc content were between 0.28 and 0.62 mg kg-1; textures were Loamy-Sand (LS), Sandy-Loam (SL), Loam (L) and Clay (C) determined. The experiment was done greenhouse conditions with three replications and maize was grown. Three different doses of N (No:0; N1:50 and N2:100 kg N ha-1) were applied to each pot as NH4NO3. Four different doses of Zn (Zn0:0; Zn1:5; Zn2:10 and Zn3:20 mg kg-1) were applied to each pot as ZnSO4.7H2O. According to the results, dry matter amount of maize plant increased with increasing of N and Zn doses. N content of maize plant increased with increasing of N application doses and Zn content of maize plant increased with increasing of Zn application doses. Zn content of maize plant decreased with increasing of N application doses and N content of maize plant decreased increasing of Zn application doses. These increases and decreases result were important determined at the level of 1%, statistically.
