SUMMARY The contents of available boron, zinc, copper, iron and manganese were determined in twenty surface soils (0-30cm depth) and profile pits collected fro m 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… CONTINUE READING
