Influence of Mulching on the Manganese Content of Corn Plant Tissue1

  1. Don T. Parker2

Synopsis

Synopsis

Seedling corn plants grown on mulched soil contained less Mn than plants grown on bare soil. Although a marked Mn deficiency did not occur, evidence of an influence on plant physiology was indicated by an accumulation of free α-amino-N in very young plants. In soils normally low in available Mn mulching could critically affect the Mn nutrition of corn.
