Abstract:
Water management issue has taken on vital importance and has been at the forefront of world political-economic debates. India has already come into the shadow of the physical & economic water scarcity zone. As wheat is a rabi crop, application of water to the crop through irrigation plays an imperative role for the survival as well as optimum growth and development of wheat crop. Keeping these points in to consideration, the present study entitled “Performance of wheat varieties under restricted irrigation” has been planned to conduct at university research farm BAU, Sabour during 2019-20, rabi season including eighteen treatment combinations of three levels of irrigation in main plot viz. (I1- No irrigation), (I2- One irrigation at CRI stage), (I3-Two irrigation at CRI and boot leaf stages) and six wheat varieties in sub plots. Among different levels of irrigation, maximum plant height, LAI, dry matter accumulation was recorded under two irrigations (I3) given at CRI and boot leaf stages which was statistically at par with one irrigations (I2) given at CRI stage. Wheat varieties also differed significantly in respect to dry matter accumulation at all progressive growth stages. Regarding the different wheat varieties, HD 3171 recorded maximum dry matter accumulation at all growth stages followed by DBW 252. The maximum dry matter accumulation (1001.7 g/m2) was recorded from variety HD 3171 at harvest stage, whereas minimum dry matter accumulation at harvest stage (920.0 g/m2) was obtained from variety K 1317.
