Abstract: The study was carried out to assess the Zn contents of prominent domestic wheat varieties and the varieties collected from different countries. The study reveals that Zn concentrations in the seed of different genotypes ranged between 10.3 to 34.7 µg g-1. The highest Zn concentrations (34.7 µg g-1) were recorded in the seed of wheat cultivar Pirsabak from Pakistan whereas the lowest concentrations were found in Turkish variety CBWF-96-151. Zinc contents within seed of genotypes under study ranged between 0.40 µg/seed to 1.39 µg/seed.
