A pot experiment on wheat yield was conducted during Rabi season of 2001-2002 with three levels of FYM (farm-yard manure) (0, 5 and 10 t/ ha) and six levels of mineral nutrients (using sulphur, with zinc sulfate and ferrous sulfate). The application of FYM manure at 10 t /ha and mineral nutrients (S + Zn + Fe + Cu + Mn) individually or in combination was found to help in the improvement of physico-chemical properties of saline soil and to give better yields of wheat-grain and straw.
