Abstract:
To assess the influence of zinc and iron nutrition management on wheat growth and quality the experiments were carried during rabi (winter) seasons of 2020-21 and 2021-22 at the Research Farm, Division of Agronomy, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu, Chatha. The experiment was replicated thrice and comprised of three wheat varieties and six levels of Zn and Fe as Factor-B arranged in factorial randomized block design. The results revealed that Wheat variety WH 1105 gave the maximum plant height and dry matter accumulation, recorded at maximum tillering stage i.e. 60 days after sowing (DAS) as well as grain yield and gluten content than varieties WB 02 and HD 3086 in comparison whereas application of Rec. NPK + soil application of chelated ZnSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 and foliar application of chelated FeSO4 @ 1% at pre-anthesis and chelated ZnSO4 @ 0.5% at grain filling stages (T6) resulted in maximum plant height and dry matter accumulation, recorded at 60 DAS, grain yield and gluten content grain yield, straw yield and harvest index besides the gross returns, net returns and near to maximum B:C ratio than other treatments in comparison.
