Review on Phosphorus and Zinc Fertilizer Application for Enhanced Performance of Crops

Dugasa Gerenfes


This review discusses about phosphorus and zinc fertilizer consumption led to increasing yield and yield components of the crops. The objectives of this review were focuses on the impact of application of phosphorus and zinc fertilizers on yield and yield components of crop plants and their importance on crop performance enhancement. The other important aspect of phosphorus and zinc nutrition is the interaction effect between them, especially in soils marginally deficient in phosphorus and zinc. When phosphorus and zinc were fertilized together, to such soils, crop yields are reported to increase with positive interaction of phosphorus and zinc. The Applications of zinc and phosphorus fertilizers led to increasing yield and yield components of crops such as height, number of tiller, Biomass yield, the number of filled grain spike, yield in ha, spike weight in plant, grain length, spike length in m2 and harvest index etc. Thus, it is important to apply the effect of P and Zn nutrients to improve yield and yield components of cops.
