A field experiment was conduced during 2018-2019 winter season at Al-Huwair, north of Basrah, Iraq. The aim was to evaluate the effect of different concentrations of foliar application of Nano-fertilizer of Iron (0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 g L-1) on growth and yield of  four varieties of wheat, Triticum aestivum L. The experimental design used was randomized complete block design. The results showed that, there is significant differences among varieties, the variety of Iraq produced highest average of plant height (110.08 cm), flag leaf area (43.87 cm-2), spike length (13.61 cm), tellers number m-2 (459.83) and biological yield (12.493 t ha-1). The foliar applications levels of Nano-fertilizer of Iron have significant effect on some growth properties and yield of wheat. The treatment of 1.5 g L-1 gave the highest average of plant height (105.42 cm), flag leaf area (38.58 cm2), spike length (12.73 cm), tellers number m-2 (467.03) and biological yield (12.765 t ha-1). Moreover, the interaction of single factors has significant effect, treat  variety of Iraq with 1.5 g L-1  of Nano-fertilizer of Iron gave the highest average of plant height (116.00 cm), flag leaf area (51.19 cm2), spike length (13.96 cm), tellers number m-2 (518.66) and biological yield (14.220 t ha-1).
