In present day quality crop cultivation is the prime objective for achieving the desire seed yield. The current problem of wheat cultivation is contributing in low yield due to use of old technology like unawareness about the efficient method and time of application of fertilizer etc. The present price hike of fertilizers is one of the main constraints to increase the economic yield of crops. Thus efforts are needed to minimize its losses and to enhance its economic use. Foliar nutrients play a vital role in cultivation of cereal crops for increasing seed yield & productivity in a sustainable manner. The present experiment has been designed to critically observe into matter by scanning out the combination of foliar nutrients in grain filling and seed yield of wheat. There were altogether nine treatments of supplementary foliar nutrients along with water spray at 50% flowering and grain filling stages. The investigation clearly shows that significantly highest seed yield (2840 kg ha-1 ) with foliar application of NaCl @ 0.5%. Lowest seed yield (2220 kg ha-1 ) was observed in water sprayed control treatment. The seed yield was increased up to 27.92% with the application of NaCl @ 0.5% over control.
