Abstract

The present study entitled “Potential of Zinc glycinate and Calcium chloride on morphological and yield characters of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L)” was carried out to assess the effectof seed treatments during 2022-2023 to find the suitable seed treatment for wheat. Thirteen treatments along with control consists of Calcium chloride, Zinc glycinate and Calcium chloride & Zinc Glycinate in different concentrations, individually and combination as well. A Randomized Block Design (RBD) was used for statistical analysis. The main objectives of this experiment was to evaluate the influence of different concentrations of Zinc glycinate and Calcium chloride on morphological and yield parameters of Wheat and to determine the effective treatment for wheat. The results indicated that all treatments recorded significant variation for pre-harvest and post-harvest parameters that were studied. The treatment T12 (Calcium chloride + Zinc glycinate-7%+7%) significantly recorded the higher values in Field emergence(95.55%), Plant height(93.13 cm), Number of tillers per plant(5.73), Spike length(15.18 cm), Seed yield per plant(16.37g) and Harvest Index(40.09%), in comparision with other treatments and lowest recorded in T0(control). This study helps to find the best suitable seed treatment for wheat.

Keywords: Seed treatment, zinc glycinate, CaCl2, field emergence, harvest index
