Abstract:

In recent years the need for supplementation of zinc have been realized for maintaining animal and human health in addition to soil and plants. Efforts are under way to improve the food grain with zinc content through agronomic and genetic manipulation. Keeping in view an experiment was conducted at Agronomy Instructional Farm, Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar on effect of sources and levels of zinc on growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in loamy sand during Rabi, 2014-2015. The soil of experimental plot was loamy sand in texture, low in both organic carbon and available nitrogen, medium in both available phosphorus and potassium and deficient in DTPA extractable zinc. In light of results obtain from this investigation, it is indicated that among sources the treatment Zn-EDTA and in case of levels of zinc the treatment Zn3 (7.5 kg Zn ha-1) brought significant improvement in growth i.e. Number of effective tillers/m row length, plant height, length of earhead, number of spikeletes / earhead, number of grains / earhead and yield attributes i.e. straw yield and grain yield over rest of the treatments.
