Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out during the Rabi season of 2016-17 at the research farm of Wheat & Barley Section, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with four sowing times (5th November, 15th November, 25th November, 5th December) in main plots and four wheat varieties (WH 1105, HD 2967, HD 3086, DBW 88) in subplots with three replications. Crop sown on 5th November took the maximum number of days to attain days to 50% heading and days to maturity and thus, accumulated significantly higher growing degree days and helio-thermal units as compared to crop sown on 5th December. Sowing of wheat on 5th November resulted in a 27.4 per cent higher grain yield as compared to 5th December sowing. Wheat variety HD 2967 took the maximum number of days to 50% heading while DBW 88 took the maximum number of days for maturity, resulting in higher growing degree days and helio-thermal units in wheat variety DBW 88. However, the maximum grain yield (5822 kg/ha) and the maximum heat use efficiency was recorded in wheat variety HD 3086.
