Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out during rabi 2020-21 at Instructional Farm of Agronomy, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur to study the performance of winter wheat under water stress and agrochemicals foliar spray treatment. The results revealed that water stress at milking recorded significantly lower plant height, dry matter, number of tillers, total chlorophyll and relative water content of leaves and there was significant reduction in yield attributes with water stress at milking. Grain, straw and biological yield were significantly reduced with water stress at heading and milking stage over no water stress. Foliar spray of KCl 1% and CaCl2 0.2% proved effective in improving growth and yield attributes. Grain yield and biological yield were significantly higher with foliar spray of KCl 1% over water spray.
