A greenhouse experiment was conducted to study seed quality, micronutrient contents and translocations in rapeseed as affected by nitrogen and zinc fertilizers. In this study, two cultivars of rapeseed (Licord and Modena), three N levels (100, 200 and 300 mg kg−1) and three Zn levels (0, 5 and 10 mg kg−1) with three replications were used. As N and Zn fertilizers’ rates increased, seed protein content and seed, shoot and root yield increased. The highest seed protein was obtained at 300 mg N kg… CONTINUE READING
