Zinc deficiency in wheat
Averaged across 4 years and 16 replicated trials, MicroEssentials® SZ® outyielded MAP by 2.0 bu/ac (3.3%).
This data demonstrated a significant yield response to the sulfur and zinc found in MicroEssentials® SZ®.
MicroEssentials® SZ® provides uniform nutrient distribution, increased phosphorus uptake, season-long sulfur availability, as well as zinc nutrition for additional yield and return on investment.
