This investigation was established to study the effect of incorporating zinc and iron fritted products of low solubility into various fertilizer granules on the availability of the zinc and iron to corn and sorghum grown in an alkaline soil. A greenhouse environment was selected to provide better control of the physical and chemical environment. The plant samples were analyzed for zinc or iron content by X-ray spectrography using loosely packed material. There were no significant differences between the effects of the various zinc carriers on vegetative production by Wf9 x Hy corn.
