Abstract:

The present field investigation resulted; highest plant height was recorded in KRL 99 while minimum in HD 2851. While less in tolerant varieties; KRL 3-4 and KRL 99 at 40 and 80 DAS. Water logging induced more reduction in tiller in susceptible variety HD 2009 followed by HD 2851 and very less reduction in tolerant varieties KRL 3-4 and KRL 99 at 40 and 80 DAS. The biomass plant-1 was more depleted in wheat susceptible varieties HD 2009 and HD 2851, while minimum in KRL 99 followed by KRL 3-4 at 40,80 DAS. Chlorophyll content extent of decrease was less in KRL 3-4 and KRL 99 as compared to HD 2851 and HD 2009. Higher soluble carbohydrate was recorded in HD 2009 and HD 2851, higher starch content was recorded in KRL 99 and KRL 3-4 and lower in HD 2009 at 40, 80 DAS respectively, maximum Na content was estimated in HD 2009, while minimum in KRL 99 in comparison to control. Highest K in KRL 3-4 while lowest in HD 2009 while higher Ca in KRL 99 and lowest in HD 2851. Maximum Fe content in HD 2009 while minimum in KRL 99. Maximum Al and Mg content were in HD 2009, while minimum in KRL 3-4. Maximum number of ear plant-1 and number of grains ear was observed in HD 2009 and HD 2851, while minimum in KRL 99. Water logging produced higher reduction in HD 2009 followed by HD 2851, while lowest in KRL 3-4. Higher biomass and test weight in HD 2009, while lowest in KRL 3-4. Highest harvest index was recorded in KRL 99, while lowest in HD 2009.


Keywords: Wheat, Water logging, Sodic soil, KRL 3-4, KRL 99, HD 2009, HD 2851.
