Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at Agromet. Research Farm, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad (U.P.) during Rabi season 2016-17 to study the effect of different dates of sowing on growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars. The experiment comprised of 9 treatment combinations and tested in randomized block design (RBD) with four replications. Experiment consisted of two factors, viz. dates of sowing and cultivars. Three wheat varieties, viz. Malviya-234, PBW-343 and NW-1012 were sown under three dates i.e. 20 November, 30 November and 10 December. Sowing dates and cultivars significantly influenced the growth characters of wheat crop. The crop sown on 20 November along with variety PBW-343 recorded highest initial plant population (m-2), plant height (cm), number of tillers m-2, dry matter accumulation (g m-2), leaf area index, days taken to 50% ear emergence and days taken to maturity as compared to rest of sowing dates and varieties. Highest net returns per rupee invested (1.33) was found with the variety ‘PBW-343’ sown on 20 November.
