The experiment was set up in a randomized complete block with three replications treatments were 1,2 and 3 times 350 ml/da wuxal-6 foliar fertilizer applications,1,2 and 3 times pure water applications, and a fertilizer application common to the region an as a check. The result are the following: 1. In the fallow-wheat rotation system, yield was lower due to mechanical damage in the foliar fertilizer and water application treatments than the check plot. In this rotation system, 1000 kernel veight and protein content of grain were not influenced by the treatment. 2. The results indicated that none of the treatments affected yield and quality of wheat in lentil-wheat rotation system. 3. No significant differences was found among yields, but 1000 kernel weight and straw yield were increased by foliar fertilizer application. 4. Foliar fertilizer application needs some extra expenses.
