Abstract

Zn applications had a positive and significant effect on the control of Sclerospora graminicola on the Pennisetum typhoides cv. HB 3. When disease incidence was <45% the effective Zn level was 15 kg/ha, while twice this dose was necessary with higher disease levels. Disease incidence had a negative correlation with the grain Zn content (0.759, P < 0.01) and a positive correlation with the straw P content (0.525, P < 0.01). The antagonistic effect of P on Zn conc. was more pronounced than that of Zn on P
