Globally, low zinc in soils are widespread. In order to investigation of sowing season and zinc sulfate application by different methods and times on quantity and quality characteristics of chickpea, an experiment was conducted with factorial arrangement based on randomized complete block design in 3 replications. Zinc sulphate (ZS) involved 8 levels (control; ZS0, soil application; ZSs, foliar spray in early flowering; ZSf, and foliar spray in early podding; ZSp and their components as ZSs ZSf…

Enrichment of cereal grains with zinc: Agronomic or genetic biofortification?

Plant breeding strategy (e.g., genetic biofortification) appears to be a most sustainable and cost-effective approach useful in improving Zn concentrations in grain, and application of Zn fertilizers or Zn-enriched NPK fertilizers offers a rapid solution to the problem.
