Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and maize (Zea mays L.) are widely consumed cereal crops throughout the world, representing a major staple food. Increased demand of food requires higher crop yields which are dependent of climatic conditions and soil fertility. Hence, for achieving this objective, it is necessary to adopt proper fertilization schemes. The excessive use of chemical fertilizers in agricultural systems poses negative environmental effects and accordingly, use of ecological inputs became a safer alternative. In this context, the aim of the present study was to assess the effect of ecological inputs’ application on quality indicators for wheat and maize crops. In the experimental scheme was included foliar fertilization during vegetation period with CODAMIX and ECOAMINOALGA, as one treatment for wheat and two treatments for maize. The obtained results indicated that both applied fertilizers favoured accumulation of protein and starch in cereal seeds at levels higher than those identified for control variant. On the basis of the achieved data, it was found that application of ECOAMINOALGA was more efficient than CODAMIX and stimulated formation of seeds with better quality parameters for both crops subjected to this study.
