Abstract :

A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season 2015-16 at the Crop Research farm of Agronomy, Allahabad School of Agriculture, SHIATS, Allahabad (U.P.) to conclude the effect of types of seedbed and levels of zinc on growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The experiment consisted of two types of seedbed i.e. furrow irrigated raised bed (FIRB) and conventional bed system, and five level of zinc viz. 0, 10, 20, 30 and 40 kg ha-1 was laid out in randomized block design (FRBD) with three replications. The result revealed that seedbed (FIRB) and zinc level (40 kg ha-1) produced the significant and plant height (98.33 and 97.07 cm), highest number of tillers hill-1 (11.87 and 11.20), Effective tillers meter-2 (451.33 and 420.83 m-2) grain yield (4.27 and 4.30 t ha-1) straw yield (₹ 4.94 and 5.22 kg ha-1) and harvest index (46.53 and 46.59%) respectively. However, the highest benefit cost ratio (3.28) was obtained in treatment (FIRB + 10 kg ha-1). Key words: Levels of zinc, types of seedbed, wheat, Furrow irrigated raised bed (FIRB) and conventional bed system.
