Effects of Soil and Foliar Application of Different Concentrations of NPK and Foliar Application of (NH4)2 SO4 on Different Yield Parameters in Wheat

Zafar Jamal , Muhammad Hamayun , Nadeem Ahmad and M. Fayyaz Chaudhary

Abstract:
An experiment was designed and conducted in order to evaluate the effect of different concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPK) i.e., NH4NO3, K2HPO4 and KH2PO4 on the yield parameters of Wheat when applied both through foliage and soil. The effect of (NH4)2SO4 through foliar application on the same plant was also studied. The grain yield increased in treatments where NPK was applied both through foliar sprays and soil. Soil application of fertilizer yield better results than foliar sprays of NPK in Wheat. Application of (NH4)2SO4 failed to show any significant increase in yield although its application enhanced the growth of wheat plant.
