Abstract

Soil analyses, the observation of visual symptoms and a nutrient omission pot trial with the navy bean varieties Gallaroy and Selection 46 were used to study a suspected zinc deficiency observed in crops in cotton, linseed and navy beans in the Dawson Callide. Soil analyses revealed light textured Callide alluvium had a pH of 6.28 and contained 0.94 ppm EDTA-ammonium carbonate extractable zinc. Symptoms of zinc deficiency obtained in solution culture were consistent with those obtained in the minus-zinc treatment in the pot trial. The reduction in plant height and dry matter production in the minus-zinc treatment was more pronounced in Gallaroy than in Selection 46. The diagnosis of zinc deficiency was confirmed.
