To study the effect of different sources of zinc on yield, nutrient content and its uptake by wheat crop, a field experiment was conducted at Research Farm of Department of Soil Science, CCS HAU, Hisar. The experiment site was neutral in reaction, non-saline, low in organic carbon content and texturally sandy loam. The grain and straw yield of wheat increased significantly in all the treatments over control. The highest grain and straw (58.87 q/ha and 74.0 q/ha) yield were recorded with the application of RDF+ 5kg Zn/ha. The maximum concentration (39.70 and 24.0 mg/kg) of Zn and its uptake (233.70 and 178.0 g/ha) by grain and straw was also recorded maximum in treatment receiving RDF+ 5kg Zn/ha.
Key words:Wheat, straw, grain, nutrient uptake and zinc
