A field experiment was undertaken to study the Performance of wheat genotype under different irrigational approaches in the Terai agro ecological condition during rabi season of 2016. The experiment was conducted at experimental field of Uttar Banga Krishi Viswavidyalaya with six different wheat genotypes under two irrigation management practices i.e. irrigated and restricted irrigated condition, in Factorial Randomized Block Design comprising of three replications. The result of experiment revealed that highest economic yield found in HD 2967 under both the irrigated and restricted irrigation condition (47.1 q ha-1 & 26.8q ha-1 respectively). Significant differences were found in all the growth and yield attributing characters in two irrigational condition. Water stress was the key reason in the reduction of yield. By observing SPAD value HD 2967 and DBW 39 can maintain their greenness than other genotypes in later growth stages. It can be a very useful character for screening wheat genotypes for drought tolerance.
