Select the best when saving seed for next years crops.. "Avoiding deficiencies early can help plants fight off the ravages of rhizoctonia and I think that's a real benefit of getting seed that's rich in Mn and Zn," he said. ".. "Another solution is to boost the nutrient levels of seeds in home-grown crops with a very late application of trace elements to the crop, in particular manganese (Mn) and zinc (Zn)."..

Growers can give themselves a head start for next season by adhering to some basic practices when it comes to retaining seed from this year's harvest... For growers with varying soil types across their farm, he said the seeds they keep for next year need to come from crops that were grown on more fertile soils... "Seed dressing would mean the retained seed would end up with a richer supply of nutrients for germinating seed, but the late spray is something that growers can get out of the way early and not worry about the following year - the seed is treated and can be stored easily," Dr Wilhelm said...
