Abstract A field experiment entitled “Effect of application of phosphorus, manganese and iron on yield and nutrient uptake by wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in an inceptisol†was conducted at Agronomy Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during rabi season of two consecutive years in 2001-02 and 2002-03 with an objective to determine the effect of phosphorus manganese and iron on dry matter accumulation, yield and yield attributes, nutrient content and uptake and nutrient availability in soil. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replication having two levels of phosphorus, four levels of manganese and iron (0, 5, 7.5 and 10 kg Mn/Fe ha-1), to evaluate their performance on wheat. Application of phosphorus, manganese and iron did not affect the nutrient content (N, K, Zn and Cu) during both the years at 30, 60 DAS and in grain and straw of wheat. However, application of phosphorus, manganese and iron significantly increased their content. Application of manganese did not affect phosphorus and iron. Similarly iron and phosphorus have no effect on manganese after harvesting of wheat. The results of present study show that dry matter accumulation, yield and yield attributes N, P, K, Fe, Mn and Cu uptake by grain and straw of wheat increased significantly with the application of phosphorus upto 20 kg P ha-1 (P1) alongwith manganese and iron upto 7.5 kg Mn/Fe ha-1 (Fe2 & Fe3). Application of Fe3 and Mn3 (10 kg Fe & Mn ha-1) was found at par with Fe2 and Mn2. Phosphorus, manganese and iron status of soil after harvesting of both crops increased significantly upto the level of 20 kg P ha-1, and 10 kg Mn/Fe ha-1.
