Abstract

Field investigations were carried out to evaluate the performance of two wheat genotypes when sprayed at different growth stages using 2, 4 and 6% urea solution. Compared to standard soil application, foliarly applied urea was betterly utilized by Soghat-90 and Sind-81. Irrespective of growth stages, foliage efficacy of urea was most prominent at 4% solution. Significantly higher crop harvests, N uptake and agronomic efficiency were recorded when both wheat cultivars were sprayed at tillering and heading stages. Grain protein content was improved by late season spraying with 6% urea solution.
