Abstract : The present investigation was conducted in net house with 12 levels of zinc (0, 10,20,30,40 and 50 kg Zn / ha soil application) with and 6 levels without foliar spray during Rabi season of 2019. Zinc levels had significant effect on nutrient content and uptake during investigation. The nutrient content recorded maximum with 30kg Zn ha-1 + 0.5% ZnSO4 spray, whereas uptake with 30 kg Zn ha-1 + 0.5% ZnSO4 spray. Nutrient content and uptake was enhanced by zinc levels and recorded maximum with 30 kg N ha-1. However, zinc uptake recorded in grain with 30 kg Zn ha-1 + 0.5% ZnSO4 spray was statistically at par with 40 kg Zn ha-1 + 0.5% ZnSO4 spray and 50 kg Zn ha-1 + 0.5% ZnSO4. Therefore, application of zinc @ 30 kg Zn ha-1 + 0.5% ZnSO4 spray is to be recommended to get higher nitrogen and protein content in grain.
