An experiment was carried out at Department of Plant Physiology, N. D. University of Agric. and Tech., Faizabad 2012-13. Experiment was conducted on wheat variety of PBW 343 to evaluate the effect of zinc and boron on seed yield and other quality parameters of wheat. Four doses of zinc viz, 0.0, 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5 kg ha-1 and four doses of boron namely 0.0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 kg ha-1 were applied. The results showed that the effect of Zn was significant to all the parameters except leaf area index at 60 & 90 DAS, chlorophyll intensity, canopy temperature depression, chlorophyll fluorescence, days to 50 % heading, plant height, and days to maturity, spike length and seed length. However, application of boron exhibited significant effect with respect to leaf area index at 30 DAS, plant height, number of tillers per m2, raw and graded seed yield, seed length, 1000 seed weight, standard germination per cent, seedling length and seedling vigour index. The 7.5 kg Zn and 1.5 kg B ha-1 have been found to be most appropriate for increasing seed yield and seed quality of wheat crop.

Keywords: Boron effect, seed yield and seed quality, wheat and zinc effect
