EFFECT OF BASAL AND FOLIAR APPLICATION OF MICRONUTRIENTS ON TOTAL CHLOROPHYLL, NITROGEN CONTENT AND YIELD OF WHEAT (TRITICURN AESTIVUM)Reena Sharma and Abha Agarwal
The effectiveness of basal and foliar application of micronutrients (ZnSO4, FeSO, and MnSO4) was tested on total chlorophyll, nitrogen content and yield traits of wheat (Triticum aestivum PBW - 343). The basal application (ZnSO4- 25 Kg-1m, FCSO4, -25 Kg/ha and MnSO4,- 10 Kg/ha) and foliar application (ZnSO4, -5 Kg/ha, FeSO4-5 Kg/ha and MnSO4- 5 kg/ha) increased the total chlorophyll, nitrogen content and yield. However basal application of micronutrients was found more effective than foliar application in all the three parameters.
