The long-term goals of this project are to improve the management of micro-nutrients such as manganese and zinc in order to help achieve higher soybean yields in Indiana cropping systems that rely on glyphosate for weed control. The specific objectives are to: 1) Better understand the soil, environment and soybean management factors that reduce manganese and zinc availability in soybean plants; and 2) Determine the optimum mode for micronutrient supplementation of Roundup ready soybean production systems for both individual and combinations of micronutrients when soybeans are grown in soils with varying micronutrient availabilities.
