In order to study the effect of foliar application of zinc and iron on germination of soybaen seed under different level of irrigation, an experiment was conducted in 2009 at Shahrekord agricultural research center. Main factor was including of four levels of drought stress as irrigation (irrigation after 60, 80, 100 and 120 mm evaporation from class A evaporation basin) and sub factor was including of four levels of foliar applications (water, zinc sulfate, iron sulfate and combined of zinc and iron sulfate). Results showed that seed yield, seed zinc content, germination percent and rate and mean germination time and seedling and cotyledon dry weight were affected by the interaction of irrigation and foliar application. Irrigation after more eveporation significantly decreased 1000-seed weight. Foliar application of iron and combined of zinc and iron had significant effect on seed iron content. Germination percent in irrigation after 80 and 120 mm evaporation from the class A evaporation basin was not affected by foliar application, and iron foliar application in other levels of irrigation, let to the lowest germination percent. Foliar application of iron had the highest mean germination time. Foliar application of element. Root and shoot dry weight was increased by foliar application of zinc compared to water and combined of zinc and iron foliar application. Generally foliar application of zinc and combined zinc and iron, could improve most of the germination characteristics. High correlation coeficient between 1000-seed wieght and seed zinc content with most of the germination characteristics, showed that these traits had maximum effect on germination of soybean.
