Abstract:

Positive responses to Zn addition on numerous crops have been documented. In this study, we field tested no Zn (0 kg ZnSO4.7 H2O/acre) and Zn treatment (25 kg ZnSO4.7 H2O/acre) in zinc deficient sites and their effect on grain yield of Pusa Basmati 1121. Surface soil samples (0-15cm) were collected from 16 sites from basmati rice grown soils in Gurdaspur district of Punjab. Findings of the study revealed that soils had variable available phosphorus and zinc status. The grain yield ranged from 20.8 to 29.8 q/ha in control with mean value of 25.3 q/ha and in zinc treated plots grain yield ranged from 26.8 to 33.5 q/ha with mean value of 30.1 q/ha. A maximum response of (0.5-10.8 q/ha) was recorded with an increase of 29.3 per cent over control. Soil samples were also analyzed to assess the bioavailability of zinc using different extractants. The amount of Zn extracted using different chemical extractants was in the following order: AB-EDTA (ammonium bicarbonate-ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid)> Mehlich-3> AB-DTPA (ammonium bicarbonate- diethylene triamine penta acetic acid) > DTPA-HCl (diethylene triamine penta acetic acid- hydrochloric acid)> 0.1N HCl (hydrochloric acid)> DTPA (diethylene triamine penta acetic acid). The amount of Zn extracted by 0.005M DTPA+1M NH4HCO3 (pH 7.6), 0.01M EDTA+1M NH4HCO3¬ (pH 8.6), 0.005M DTPA+ 0.1N HCl, 0.005M DTPA (pH 7.3), 0.1N HCl and Mehlich-3 was well correlated with each other. Most commonly used 0.005M DTPA solution for extracting available Zn in soils was highly and significantly correlated with all the other extractants.
