Wheat production is constrained in arid and semi arid areas, where water is the limiting factor for plant growth. This study investigated the effect of irrigation deficit at the end of the productive growth stage and utilization of P, Zn and Cu on biological yield, in two bread wheat cultivars. The result of this experiment demonstrate that irrigation deficit at the anthesis stage did not significantly effect leaf and stem dry weight in the anthesis and maturity stages.
