In a field experiment conducted with faba bean (Vicia faba L.) on a clay soil, low in available phosphorus, sulfur and zinc, application of increasing levels of P,S and Zn significantly increased the grain yield and the concentration of P, S and N in grain and straw. The concentration of Zn in the plant (grain and straw) decreased with the application of P, while it increased significantly with the application of S and Zn. The combined application of P, S and Zn showed synergistic relationships and the most appropriate treatment combination for faba bean nutrition was 80 kg P, 20 kg S and 20 kg Zn/ha
