Abstract:

Cereals are generally regarded as the “staff of life”. Wheat, rice and maize are the major cereals constituting the staple diet of the majority of the world population among which wheat is counted among the ‘big three’ cereal crops. Zero tillage enables farmers to sow wheat in left optimum moisture with good germination capacity and increases soil aggregates due to minimal disturbance of soil structure/texture. The present experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2016-17 at agronomy farm of BAU, Sabour, Bihar. Plant height was found to be non-significant with conventional and zero tillage practice while significant with genotypes. With increasing days, the plant height was maximum at maturity stage, the highest recorded value was found in BRW 3708 (105.00cm). Results revealed that better photosynthesis due to greater leaf area index resulted significantly higher dry matter production with more number of tillers per plant was observed in BRW 3708 (LAI-3.85, dry matter accumulation-1057.4 g/m2 and tillers – 276.6 tillers/m2) genotype of the wheat. After zero tillage deep tillage remained better over minimum and conventional tillage. Hence, it may be concluded that zero tillage could be useful, cost-effective and environmental friendly approach in order to enhance the wheat yield as compared to other techniques.
