A field experiment was conducted on a sandy loam soil to study the effect of liquid fertilizers on productivity and quality of the wheat crop. The liquid fertilizers. Polyfeed (19-19-19+ ME), Polywheat (23-7-23 +ME) and Multi K(13-0-45) were applied with different doses, time and fertilizer combinations (12 treatments). The grain and straw yield were at par with the application of these fertilizers and also with different doses (1 or 2%). Nutrient response (kg grain/kg NPK) was comparable in 75% of recommended fertilizer + liquid fertilizer (Polyfeed + Polywheat and Polyfeed + Multi K) with recommended dose. Maximum protein content (13.52%) was recorded in polyfeed + multi K (2%) two sprays after heading, which was significantly higher than recommended fertilizer dose (12.76%). Among liquid fertilizers polyfeed + multi K was superior to polyfeed + polywheat
