In a greenhouse study manganese concentrations exceeded 1 100 ppm in maize (Zea mays L.) on an acid red sandy-clay loam. These values were not associated with reduction in plant mass, although slight toxicity symptoms developed. Plant manganese concentrations were decreased by liming to an average of 200 ppm Mn and were not affected by molybdenum applications. Lime in the absence of molybdenum significantly increased plant mass but did not wholly eliminate molybdenum deficiency symptoms. There… CONTINUE READING
