Physio-chemical Qualities of Wheat Varieties as Influenced by Nitrogen and Sulfur Fertilization
Beena Saeed, Amir Zaman Khan and Hasina Gul

Nitrogen and sulfur supplies have a strong influence on the physio-chemical characteristics of crop as well as on the quality and quantity of wheat storage proteins, which play an important role in bread-making process. In order to evaluate the contribution of soil and foliar fertilization of nitrogen and sulfur on quality assessment of wheat, a field trail was carried out having RCB design with four replications and eight different treatments of N and S combinations allotted to plots at different growth stages. Results indicated that highest gluten content (28.35%) was recorded when the wheat crop was fertilized with treatment number-6. Likewise minimum ash contents (1.83%) and minimum electrical conductivity was observed with fertilization of treatment number-8, while control practice result low gluten contents, low standard germination %age and minimum accelerated aging germination test value. In all the recorded observations concerning the experiment wheat cultivar Pirsabaq-2005 showed appreciable response as compared with other variety. So it is possible to obtain maximum quality assessment traits of wheat grain and flour through soil and foliar application of N and S.
