Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to assess the effect of sowing dates and varieties on the nutrient uptake and economics of Wheat crop (Triticum aestivum L.) under the changing climate in Rabi season (November-April) 2017-18. The experiment was conducted at Crop Research Station Masodha, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhaya (U.P) during Rabi season. The experiment was carried out for four dates of sowing (05th November, 25th November, 15th December, 05th January) in the main plot against six varieties (HD-3086, HS-562, HI-1544, WR-544, MACS-6222, and HD-2967) in the subplot with three replication. Available nitrogen (195.3) and phosphorus (17.25) is low and potassium (285.0) is found medium in the soil. The soil was found silty loam having neutral pH and organic carbon with a value of 0.35, EC (0.25). The soil was moderate for the cultivation of the wheat crop. The present study was taken to generate information about the effect of different sowing dates and varieties on the growth of the Wheat crop. The optimum dates of sowing are evaluated in this experiment because of the increase in seasonal temperature. Among the varieties, HD-3086 on 25th November provides the best results. 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 HD-3086 on 25th November. Maximum net return was found with sowing of HD-3086 on 25th November.
