Combined foliar application of ZnSO4 (0.5%) +urea (2%) + thiourea (500 ppm) twice at 45 and 65 days after sowing (DAS) under rainfed condition on widely evaluated two wheat varieties resulted in significantly higher plant height (cm), leaf area (cm2 ), number of tillers, dry matter accumulation, chlorophyll content In leaf, yield and its component over water sprayed control as well as treatments. Among wheat varieties, K-9351 was found more responsive as it yielded (38.5 q/ha) then K-8027 (33.1 q/ha).
