A field experiment was carried at the Agronomy Instructional Farm, Department of Agronomy, Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar to study the effect of iron and zinc enriched organics on growth, yield attributes and yield of wheat(Triticum aestivum L.) in loamy sand (Typic Ustipsamments) during rabi season of 2017-18.The results revealed that an application of vermicompost @ 0.2 t ha-1 enriched with 5.00 kg Fe and 2.50 kg Zn in conjunction with recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) significantly improved growth and yield attributes viz. plant height, number of effective tillers per meter row length, length of earhead, number of grains per earhead, 1000 grain weight and grain and straw yield of wheat as compared to control (RDF).
