Zinc Copper and
Boron are viable in wheat at very low rates of application, only

You do not need
to use Chelated Zinc, just simple ammoniated Zinc at about 75 cents

Make sure the
total micros package is no more than $3.50 to $4.00 per acre, or
about 1 bushel of wheat is at risk.
Note: Do not let
the fertilizer dealer talk you into Chelated Zinc, it is way too
expensive for dryland wheat. Ammoniated Zinc is built by Agrium at

Phosphate 10-34-0 is purposely designed as a chain link carrier for
