Abstract

All the growth characters (lAI, LAR, NAR, RGR and dry matter accumulation) were higher at high fertility (120,60,60 kg NPK/ha). Maximum lAI was observed at 75 DAS (5.36), LI\R at 30 DAS (16374 em/g), NAR at 60-75 DAS (8.31 g/m/day) and RGR at 30-45 (80.65 mg/ g/day) crop growth periods. Among micronutrients, zinc application increased the different growth parametres and yield followed by sulphur and manganese. Iron and boron did not influence the growth and yield of wheat significantly. Zinc, manganese and boron content was higher in grain than straw whereas iron and sulphur content was higher in straw.
