Field experiments will be done to study the effects of Zn and B application on banana. Effects of Zn and B fertilization on plant growth, fruit production (amount and quality), plant nutrition and on some soil characteristics will be evaluated. Besides studying banana responses, we intend to update fertilizer recommendation for the Vale do Ribeira region (Brazil). (AU)
