Abstract:

The present experiment was conducted to evaluate the yield and yield components of 30 wheat varieties for identification desirable genotypes. Two consecutive rabi cropping seasons of 2014-15 and 2015-16 trial was carried out at Crop Research Farm (CRF) of department of Agronomy. Morphological data for agronomic characters were recorded for plant height (cm), number of spikelets spike-1, number of grains spike-1, 1000-grain weight, grain yield and harvest index. The analysis of variance for agronomic traits (plant height, number of spikelets spike-1 number of grains spike-1, 1000-grain weight, grain yield and harvest index) revealed significant variation in first cropping season, number of grains per spike was non-significant in second cropping season and number of spikelets spike-1 was non-significant in second cropping season as well as in pooled data. Majority of the wheat genotypes possessed yield higher levels. Higher yielding varieties had recorded higher values of harvest index. The present study demonstrated high grain yield genotypes possessed the combination of other agronomic desirable characters.
