Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted for 4 successive years, consisting of eight treatments laid out in randomized block design to evaluate the nutrient content and uptake by wheat (Triticum aestivum L) as influenced by iron and zinc enriched FYM on salt affected soils of Gujarat. The results reveal that application of recommended dose of fertilizer (120-60-00 NPK kg ha-1) on the basis of STV + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 enriched with 0.75 kg Zn and 1.5 kg Fe (T8) recorded significantly higher grain and straw yields of wheat over T1 (Recommended dose of fertilizer on the basis of STV only) on pooled basis. Significantly higher nitrogen (2.41%), phosphorus (0.33%) and iron (59.07 mg kg-1) content in grain and highest nitrogen (1.09%), phosphorus (0.173%), potassium (1.32%), iron (265.2 mg kg-1) and zinc (42.75 mg kg-1) content in wheat straw were observed with the application of RDF (based on STV) along with 0.5 t FYM ha-1 En. with 0.75 kg Zn and 1.5 kg Fe on pooled basis. While, significantly higher potassium content in wheat grain was observed with the application of recommended dose of fertilizer (120-60-00 NPK kg ha-1) on the basis of STV+1.0 t FYM ha-1 (T5) on pooled basis. The results revealed that significantly maximum nitrogen (119.82 and 84.97 kg ha-1), phosphorus (16.25 and 14.02 kg ha-1), potassium (31.54 and 104.2 kg ha-1) and iron (305.8 and 2098 g ha-1) uptake by wheat grain and straw was recorded under treatment T8 (T1 + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 En. with 0.75 kg Zn and 1.5 kg Fe) on pooled basis; but in case of zinc uptake by wheat grain (88.88 g ha-1) was higher under treatment T5 (T1 + 1.5 kg Zn + 3.0 kg Fe ha-1) on pooled basis.
