The field experiment was carried out at the students’ experimental farm Department of Agronomy at SAU Tando Jam.Our study results showed that growth and yield components of wheat Varity kiran-95 were significantly differences, extreme plant height (96.60cm), tillers (331.00 m-2), spike length (11.79 cm), grains  per spike(48.00), weight of grain per spike- (2.52 g), seed index (1000-grain weight) (47.90 g), biological yield (11950 Kg ha-1) , grain yield ( 5775 Kg ha-1)  and harvest index (49. 82) was observed under T9 = 2000 g ha-1 followed by plant height (93.15 cm), tillers (312.00 m-2), spike length (11.64 cm), grains spike-1 (56.00), weight of grain spike-1 (2.08 g), seed index (1000-grain weight, 47.58 g), biological yield (11818 Kg ha-1), grain yield  (5514 Kg ha-1) and harvest index (48.33% ) were noted under T= 1500g  ha-1 Whereas, the least plant height (73.80 cm), tillers (248.00 m-2), spike length (9.08 cm), grains spike-1 (31.88 ), weight of grain spike-1 (1.45 g), seed index (1000-grain weight, 33.01 g), biological yield (11950Kg ha-1), grain yield (3022 Kg ha-1) and harvest index (41.81%) was recorded in T1 = (Control No fertilizer).
