Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out during two consecutive rabi seasons of 2009-10 and 2010-11 at the Agronomy farm, College of Agriculture, Swami Keshwanand Rajasthan Agricultural University, Bikaner to find out the effect of phosphorus, zinc and iron on yield and quality of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in Loamy sand soils of Western Rajasthan with ten treatments comprising 4 levels of phosphorus (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg ha-1) and zinc (0, 3 and 6 kg ha-1) in main plots and 3 levels of iron (0, 3 and 6 kg ha-1) in split-plot design with three replications. Application of phosphorus up to 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 significant]y increased the grain, straw and biological yields beyond which it increased non-significantly and registered a mean increase of 26.2, 30.6 and 28.8 per cent, respectively over control. Application of phosphorus @ 40 kg P2O5 ha-1, 3 kg Zn ha-1 and of 6 kg Fe ha-1 significantly increased the chlorophyll content of wheat at flowering stage and protein content of grains in wheat during both the years of investigations and in pooled analysis. Whereas, Application of higher doses of phosphorus, zinc and iron did not had significant effect on total sugar content of grain and crude fibre content.
