The field experiment were carried out using split plot design with three replication during kharif 2006-07 and 2007-08 to investigate the effect of varieties and Zn, Fe and FYM on nutrient content, uptake and yield of rice (Oryza sativa). The experiment consisted of two level of varieties (V1:NDR-359, V2:HUBR-2-1) and two fertilizer source (F1:RFD100, F2:RFD75+FYM25) in main plot and nine level of micronutrient combination (M0:0, M1:Zn-EDTA1, M2:Zn-EDTA0.5, M3:Fe-EDTA1, M4:Fe-EDTA0.5, M5:Zn-EDTA1+Fe-EDTA1, M6:Zn-EDTA0.5+Fe-EDTA0.5, M7:Zn-EDTA1+Fe-EDTA0.5, M8:Fe-EDTA1+Zn-EDTA0.5) allotted in sub-plot. Among the different testing varieties, V1:(NDR-359) recorded highest yield and NPK content in grain, while significant content of Zn and Fe recorded in HUBR-2-1. Among different fertilizer sources, nutrient supplied through RFD75+FYM25 was record improvement in Zn and Fe content and uptake in grain and straw of rice. The significantly high content of Zn and their uptake in grain recorded under supply through the micronutrient level M7 (Zn:EDTA1+Fe-EDTA0.5). Whereas foliar application of M4:Fe-EDTA0.5 at 15 DAT and 50% panicle initiation significantly increased Fe content and uptake in grain and straw. Interaction effect of HUBR-2-1 and RFD75+FYM25 with single application of Zn-EDTA1 through soil recorded significant zinc content in grain. It can be concluded that the NDR-359 was found the high yielding rice cultivar responding to RFD75+FYM25 along with supply of micronutrient as Zn-EDTA1+Fe-EDTA0.5 in alluvial soil of Uttar Pradesh.
