A field experiment was conducted under All India Co-ordinated Research Project on “Micro, secondary nutrients and pollutant elements in soils and plants” during two consecutive years 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 with fallow-wheat cropping sequence on a Typic Haplustert at the Research Farm of Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, J.N. Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur (M.P.) to study the influence of Zn application on its translocation into various plant parts of wheat and its impact on chemical composition and quality of grain. The recommended dose of N, P and K was applied at 120 N: 60 P2O5: 40 K2O kg ha-1 in combination with Zn at 0, 1.25, 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 kg ha-1 as zinc sulphate. The results revealed that the application of increasing levels of Zn at 5, 10 and 20 kg ha-1 significantly increased the Zn concentration in root, stem, leaves and earhead of wheat over
Key words: Zn application, translocation, chemical composition, quality, wheat, Typic Haplustert.
