Zinc deficiency is common (2) on bean plants grown on calcareous
Portneuf silt loam in the Magic Valley of southern Idaho. Ten pounds of zinc
per acre every third year is recommended for prevention (4). Land leveling
or deep plowing brings to the surface the highly calcareous subsoil and intensifies
the zinc deficiency problem. Beans grown following sugar beets or high
manure or phosphate fertilizer applications are more likely to exhibit zinc
deficiency symptoms (4).
