The antagonistic effect of Zn and other micronutrients was studied in sand culture using Long Aston nutrient solution. Five levels of Zn were employed to wheat plant along with other essential plant nutrients. It was observed that Zn application had adverse effect on Fe concentration and Fe uptake in plant. Zinc deficient plants had significantly higher concentration of Fe. The results indicated that as the Zn concentration in the substrate was increased, the Fe concentrations in plants were decreased. Zinc also antagonised the uptake of Mn and Cu in the plants. Zinc had such a pronounced adverse effect on Cu concentration that its concentration dropped to deficiency level (3 μg ml-1). The roots always showed higher concentrations of these elements than shoots. The higher concentrations of trace elements were observed during first growth stage as compared with second growth stage.
