In order to evaluate the effects of manganese sulfate on yield and yield components of three wheat cultivars at anthesis and physiological maturity stage, an experiment was conducted as a split plot layout with a randomized complete block design with four replications at Agriculture Research Farm at the south of Abadeh city. Main plots were manganese sulfate (0, 20 and 40 kg/ha) and sub plots were winter wheat cultivars (Marvdasht, Shiraz and Pishtaz). The effects of manganese sulfate was significant on the number of infertile spikes, fertile spikes, number of grains in spike, 1000 grain weight, grain yield, protein and manganese contents of grain. Cultivar had significant effect on number of infertile and fertile spikes, 1000 grain weight, grain yield and protein content. The interaction between these two parameters was significant on harvest index, grain yield and manganese content of grain. The highest number of fertile spike, number of grain, 1000 grain weight, harvest index, grain yield, grain protein and the content of grain manganese was obtained by application of 40 kg manganese sulfate per ha. Also, the maximum number of fertile spikes, number of grains per spike, grain yield and the content of grain manganese was achieved by Marvdasht cultivar. So, plantation of Marvdasht cultivar and application of 40 kg Mn sulfate per ha was suitable for this region.
