Abstract:

Among the micronutrients, zinc deficiency is widespread throughout the world particularly in upland rice fields causing low yields and affecting nutritional quality of the produce. Iron is also another micronutrient which is lacking in soil as well as in human body. Field studies were carried out during the growing season 2015-16 and 2016-17 at Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (Maharashtra) to study “Influence of zinc and iron fortification on yield and Post-harvest studies of different rice cultivars (Oryza sativa L.)”. The treatments were laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD) with three replications. Two years results shows that among varieties PBNR-03-02 explored highest yield and post-harvest studies whereas combine application of ZnSO4 + FeSO4 with RDF treatment recorded maximum yield as well as post-harvest characters respectively.
