Background and aimsAgronomic biofortification of Zn requires an effective Zn application method and efficient Zn utilization by the crops. Various Zn application methods were compared for Zn biofortification in grains of wheat grown in a calcareous soil under glasshouse conditions.MethodsWheat (cv. Shafaq-2006) was treated with different Zn applications to soil (0, 4.5 or 9 mg Zn kg−1), seed (100 mL of either 0 or 6.75 % Zn w/v sprayed on 1 kg seed) and foliage (distilled-water-sprayed control… Expand
