Magnesium application enhanced the effect of zinc on growth and grain yield of rice in alkali/sodic soil.Ten kg MgSO/ha almost doubled the biomass production under normal supply of 25 kg ZnSO/ ha largely due to increased tillering. It also hastened the process of heading. Magnesium tended to reduce the chaffy grains and thereby increased the filled-grains and grain size leading to yield enhancement significantly. Further, magnesium application resulted in dark green colour of leaves due to… CONTINUE READING
