A fie experiment was conducted at the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka 1207, during the kharif season of 2014 to study the effects of Zinc on the concentrations of N, P, K, S and Zn in Mungbean stover and seed (BARI mug 6). Three levels of zinc (Zn) (0, 1.5 and 3 kg Zn ha-1) were used in the study. The results revealed that The N, P, K and S concentration of mungbean plant increased significantly from control to Zn2 (3 kg Zn ha-1) treatment. Application of zinc increase organic carbon, N, P, K and S status of postharvest soil significantly.
Key Words: Mungbean, zinc, concentration of N P K S & Zn, stover and seed.
