Response of Iron and Zinc on Yield Attributes, Yield and Economics of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
International Journal of Plant & Soil Science,
A field study was conducted during Rabi season of 2019-20 on “Response of Iron and Zinc on Yield Attributes, Yield and Economics of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)” at Research Farm of Vivekananda Global University, Jaipur. The treatments comprised different combinations of recommended dose of fertilizer and micronutrients. Results showed that the yield attributes and yield net returns and benefit cost ratio of wheat was significantly increased due to application of different treatment combinations of zinc and iron. The maximum number of effective tillers m-2, grains spike-1, spike length, grain yield (4887 kg ha-1), straw yield (6718 kg ha-1) and biological yield (11606 kg ha-1) of wheat was obtained with RDF + soil application of ZnSO4 @ 25 kg ha-1 + FeSO4 @ 50 kg ha-1 (T10). Application of RDF + soil application of ZnSO4 @ 25 kg ha-1 + foliar application of ZnSO4 (0.5%) at tillering stage (T6) gave highest net returns ( 65168 ha-1) and B: C ratio (2.83).
