Abstract: A Field trial was conducted to investigate the effect of zinc and iron on growth and yield of hybrid rice. Experimental soil was of red sandy loam soil. Trial Comprising of 12 treatments combination using split plot design with three replications at the wetland of College of Agriculture, V.C. Farm, Mandya, University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru (Karnataka), India during the season of kharif in the year 2014. It was found that among the methods of rice cultivation SRI method of cultivation was found significantly superior over other methods of rice cultivation. Soil application of ZnSO4 and FeSO4 gives higher plant height and grain yield, Seed treatment combined with foilar application of ZnSO4 and FeSO4 at panicle initiation and boot leaf stage showed higher total dry matter production and total number of grains per panicle and number productive tillers per hill was high in seed treatment of ZnSO4 and FeSO4.
