This thesis problem was initiated to further evaluate the effect of phosphorus on micronutrient uptake on two Nebraska soils and to study any differences among corn hybrids with respect to micronutrient uptake under several levels of phosphorus fertilization.
A greenhouse study was conducted for the purpose of evaluating the effect of applied F on micronutrient uptake of several corn hybrids. Differential uptake of nutrients by genetically different plants was studied through the use of four different corn hybrids (two inbred lines and two single-cross hybrids). The soils used in this experiment were a Sharpsburg silty clay loam and a Hord very fine sandy loam.
