Abstract
Zinc is known to occur in soils in a number of discrete chemical forms differing in solubility and thus availability to plants (Viets,_ 1962; Jenne, 1977). Zinc in soil occurs in five chemical pools, namely water soluble, exchangeable, adsorbed or chelated or complexed, occluded by or precipitated with metal oxides, carbonates, phosphates or other secondary minerals and held in primary minerals. An equilibrium exists among these pools (Viets, 1962).
