The present field experiment was conducted at pot house of the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry of C.S.A.U.A & T Kanpur (campus) under the Central Plain zone of Uttar Pradesh, during Rabi season of 2019-20. The experiment comprised of 9 treatment combinations in randomized block design with three replications consisted of T1: Control, T2: RDF + FYM (50%), T3: RDF + FYM (100%), T4: RDF + Zn (50%), T5: 2 RDF + Zn (100%), T6: RDF + FYM (50%) + Zn (50%), T7: RDF + FYM (100%) + Zn (50%), T8: RDF + FYM (50%) + Zn (100%), T9: RDF + FYM (100%) + Zn (100%). On the basis of the results emanated from the present investigation, it could be concluded that application of RDF + FYM (100%) + Zn (100%) applied in wheat to significantly increases growth parameter, i.e. plant height and yield attributes, i.e. no. of tiller plant-1, no. of ear plant-1, no. of seeds ear-1, weight of ear (g), grain weight ear-1 (g), 1000 seed weight (g), spike length (cm) and no. of spikelets spike-1. Results showed that among the different fertility levels, application of RDF + FYM (100%) + Zn (100%) significantly enhanced productivity parameters, i.e. grain yield, straw yield, biomass yield and harvest index over the control.
