This study was carried out in 2019 in Kahramanmaraş University Field Crops Department to determine nitrogen and zinc fertilizer needs of maize plants in Kahramanmaraş Region. Experiments were conducted in split-plots design with 3 replications. Soil nitrogenous fertilizer (Urea) treatments were arranged as: 0 kg/da (N0), 15 kg/da (N15), 30 kg/da (N30). Foliar zinc treatments were arranged as 0 ppm (Zn0), 2500 ppm (Zn5), 5000 ppm (Zn10).  Dekalp DKC6890 hybrid maize variety was used as the plant material of the experiments. Present findings revealed that nitrogen and zinc treatments had significant effects on the first cob height, cob length, cob thickness, number of rows per cob, number of kernels per cob and kernel yield of maize plants, but the effects of nitrogen and zinc treatments on plant height and thousand kernel weight were not found to be significant.
