Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to investigate the combined effect of NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potash) on the growth of wheat cultivars super golden. The objective of study was to determine effects of different levels of NPK on Growth by wheat (Triticum eastiveum L.) variety. The thrice replicated treatments (T0: 0 -0 -0 NPK, T1: 30- 0-20 NPK, T2: 60 -0 -0 NPK, T3: 120 - 0 -0 NPK, T4: 0 -15 -50 NPK, T5: 0 -30 -0 NPK, T6: 0 -60 -10 NPK, T7: 120 -60 -50 NPK and T8: 60 -30 -25 NPK) Kg ha-1 were tested in Randomized Block Design (RBD). The results revealed that highest growth parameters replied significantly to NPK fertilizers. It is resulted that highest growth was recorded with the application of (120-60-50) NPK Kg ha-1 and lowest conclude treatment combinations T0 (0- 0- 0) NPK kg ha-1.
