The contents of available boron, zinc, copper, iron and manganese were determined in twenty surface soils (0-30cm depth) and profile pits collected from Northern Guinea and Sudan savanna zones which are the major tomato and horticultural crops growing areas of northern Nigeria savanna. The contents of available B from surface soils, extracted with hot water, varied from 0.04 – 0.28 with a mean of 0.14 mg kg -1 , while Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn, extracted with 0.1N HCl, varied from 1.8 –10.5, 1.0 – 9.0… CONTINUE READING
