Abstract:
A field experiment was executed during Rabi season of 2020-21 at Crop Research Farm of SHUATS, Prayagraj to study about the influence of different methods of sowing and phosphorus levels on growth and yield of wheat. The experiment was laid out in encountered Randomized Block Design (RBD), comprising two factors and 9 treatments, each replicated thrice. In view of this experiment three methods of sowing, i.e. M1-Broadcasting, M2-Line sowing, M3-System of Wheat Intensification as well as and three Phosphorus levels P1- 40 kg/ha, P2-60 kg/ha and P3-80 kg/ha. Results were revealed that maximum number of tillers/plant (9.5), dry weight (17.46 g/plant), effective tillers/plant (9.33), length of spike (11.46 cm), no. of grains/spike(56), test weight (36.99 gm) were found to be significantly higher with application of treatment (T9) SWI + 80 kg/ha P as compared to the other treatments. Maximum values were recorded higher in the application of (T8) Line sowing + 80 kg/ha P in plant height (79.89 cm), grain yield (3.37 t/ha) and straw yield (4.56 t/ha). Maximum harvest index (44.65%) was recorded in the application of (T5) Line sowing + 60 kg/ha P. Therefore, concluded that the (T8) Line sowing + 80 kg/ha P can produce more grains and will be economically effective.
