A study was made over 3 years to find out an optimum rate of Zn application for the maize–mungbean–rice cropping system in a calcareous soil of Bangladesh. Zinc application was made at 0, 2 and 4 kg ha−1 for maize (cv. Pacific 984, Thai hybrid) and at 0, 1 and 2 kg ha−1 for rice (cv. BRRI dhan33), with no Zn application for mungbean (cv. BARI mung5). Effect of Zn was evaluated in terms of yield and mineral nutrients contents (N, P, S and Zn). All the three crops responded significantly to Zn… CONTINUE READING
