2008) showed that surface stratification of Zn in no-tilled soils, as opposed to cultivated soils, is probably the result of redeposition of this nutrient from the deeper soil horizons during plant fall, surface placement of inorganic fertilisers containing this cation as an impurity, as well as less soil disturbance, de Santiago et al.
