Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2015-16 at Instructional Farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture JAU, Junagadh to evaluate identification of suitable date of sowing and variety of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) for South Saurashtra, Gujarat under changing climatic conditions. The experiment consisting of 12 treatment combinations of four dates of sowing in main plots (05th November, 15th November, 25th November and 05th December) and three varieties in sub plots (GW 322, GW 366 and GW 173) was carried out in split plot design with three replications. Significantly maximum germination percentage, plant population per square meter, plant height, dry matter accumulation, root dry weight, root length, root volume, crop growth rate from 30 to 60 DAS, maximum number of tillers/plant, effective tillers/meter, total tillers/meter, length of spike, number of grains/spike, weight of spike, test weight, grain yield, straw yield and biological yield was recorded with sowing of GW 366 on 15th November. Protein content in grain, and nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content of grain and straw as well as their uptake by grain and straw was significantly higher with sowing of GW 366 on 15th November. Maximum net returns was found with sowing of GW 366 on 15th November.
