Abstract: Wheat is a staple food of world, especially of developing countries, which lacks mechanism of zinc absorption, compared to pulses, more intention is therefore necessary to be given for the same. Micronutrient, zinc, deficiency affects one third population of world. Although it is not integral part like nitrogen, phosphorus and potash but recent arised deficiencies in soil, plants and of course in human beings ranged a bell of danger. Improper and imbalanced application of fertilizers, especially of N, P, and K lack of awareness among farmers about zinc and its application and prospects, are some major primary factors that prevent its application. Besides, this, it is also important for growth and development of plant and animals. Application of zinc is therefore necessary in wheat through different sources that are compatible for particular soil, management and its availability
