Zinc Mobility in Wheat: Uptake and Distribution of Zinc Applied to Leaves or Roots

The present study tested a range of Zn forms applied foliar for their sustainability to provide adequate Zn nutrition to wheat.

Foliarly-applied Zn was translocated to leaves above and below the treated leaf as well as to the root tips. Stem girdling confirmed that Zn transport toward lower leaves and roots was via the phloem. Foliar application of Zn in inorganic or organic form is equally suitable for providing adequate Zn nutrition to wheat.
