Clinoptilolite, as a N, K, and Zn source for plants
Clinoptilolite was tested for its capacity to enhance availability of N, K, and Zn in the production of vegetable and flower species. Ammonium charged zeolite and mixtures of zeolite plus ammonium sulfate or urea were evaluated in a greenhouse experiment involving a medium (13% clay) textured alkaline soil with no drainage provided and a light (6% clay) textured soil which was leached 6 times during the course of the experiment. Controls were ammonium sulfate and urea. Banding provided the most effective method of application of zeolite compared to incorporation when radish, Raphanus sativus cv. ...
