Abstract:

In North West Plain Zone (NWPZ), where the hot, dry wind is frequent during grain filling, wheat cultivars suffer from loss of grain weight because of low grain filling rate. A field study was carried out under normal sown conditions to evaluate the phenological variation in forty wheat genotypes. Significant genotypic differences were observed for most of the traits. WH 1105, WH 1138 and HD 2967 had the highest grain yield per plant 1150.0, 1136.7 and 1103.3 g/plot respectively. The grain yield showed significant and positive correlation with number of tillers per meter, flag leaf length, flag leaf area, harvest index, grain weight per spike, 1000 grain weight and grain growth rate at 28 days. Grain growth rate (GGR) at 14 and 28 days after anthesis (DAA) showed positive correlations with grain weight per spike and thousand grain weight.
