ABSTRACT
In our studies the highest mean significant yield of spring triticale grain of the Kargo variety was obtained following the application of 120 kg N·ha-1 and after the foliar application of the highest dose of zinc, as compared to the examined lower levels of fertilization. The used variable fertilization with nitrogen applied to the soil and the foliar application of zinc, on average, resulted in a significant increase in the content of total protein in spring triticale grain of the Kargo variety. The values of the most important baking indices determined for spring triticale manifested growing tendencies within the entire range of the applied doses of nitrogen and zinc. On average, the highest significant content of wet gluten was obtained following the application of 120 kg N·ha-1, and of the highest dose of zinc as compared to, respectively, the dose of 80 kg N·ha-1 and to control.
