Abstract:

Intensive and multiple cropping, cultivations of crop varieties with heavy nutrient requirement and unbalanced use of chemical fertilizers especially nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers reduced quality of grain production and the appearance of micronutrient deficiency in crops. Experiment was conducted on variety K307 and K1006. Five doses of zinc viz. 0.0%, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% zinc solution were sprayed at two stages of crop i.e. 60 & 90 DAS was applied. Observations were recorded on morph-physiological characters, yield and yield attributing characters. Result showed that the application of zinc affected significantly to all the parameters except days to heading, chlorophyll intensity, chlorophyll fluorescence, plant height, spike length and leaf area index at 60 and 90 DAS, number of tillers per m-2, seed yield per plot, 1000 seed weight, standard germination per cent, seedling length and seedling vigour index and most of the yield and quality related parameters were significantly affected by application of 2% zinc solution have been found to be most appropriate for increasing seed yield and seed  quality of wheat  variety K307 and K1006. Variety K1006 was found better and superior for grain yield per plot, number of tillers m-2, number of seed per spike and other yield attributing parameters.
