Project Description

Greenhouse studies will be undertaken to determine the effect on Zn uptake with a modified Company IcON Zn product. The study will examine the effect and potential benefits of salicylic acid, EB97 and FA on Zn uptake under abiotic (i.e., drought) stress conditions. The greenhouse pot trial will be conducted using cultivars of wheat and corn with limited drought tolerance.
