The Wheat crop use of inorganic fertilizers for the past 50 years without any addition of organic manures resulted in the large scale deficiency of micro nutrients which play an important role in enhancing the quality and quantity of the agriculture produce. Further nutrient losses in inorganic fertilizer is very high and loss of nutrients like NO3 sometime leads to water pollution. The present experiment consist of nine treatments T1: RDF, T2: EC (1/4) basal + PM (3/4) basal, T3: FYM (1/4) basal + VC (3/4) basal, T4: FYM (1/4) basal + PM (3/4) basal, T5: EC (1/4) basal + VC (3/4) basal, T6: FYM (1/4) basal + PM (3/4) top dressing 30DAS, T7: EC (1/4) basal + VC (3/4) top dressing @ 30 DAS, T8: EC (1/4) basal + PM (3/4) top dressing at 30DAS, T9: Control. The study revealed that, among the treatments, T8 treatment i.e., T8: EC (1/4) basal + PM (3/4) top dressing at 30 DAS observed the highest leaf area at 30 DAS and 60 DAS (i.e., 15.77 and 24.12) and highest leaf area index at 30 DAS and 60 DAS (i.e., 16.70 and 2.637), more number of effective tillers per plant at 60DAS and at harvest (i.e., 116.00 and 126.66).
