Abstract:

Field studies were conducted on wheat at the PAU, Ludhiana during 2007-08 to 2009-10. The results revealed that wheat sown with zero tillage and conventional tillage gave the equivalent yield but conventional tillage with crop residue gave the considerably higher yield as compared to the former methods of planting. The foliar application of KNO3 (1%), with extra light irrigation (flooding) and sprinkling of irrigation water during post anthesis stage also gave the considerably more grain yield as compared to the recommended practices and green manuring (1:6) during 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10. The magnitude of temperature changes the maturation of the crop resulting in small, wrinkled and shrunken grains during 2007-08 and 2009-10. The crop took 129, 154 and 145 days to maturity during 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10, respectively.


Keywords: Zero tillage, Conventional tillage, Foliar application, Crop Residue and Temperature stress.
