Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during the winter season of 2019-20 and 2020-21 to study the effect on wheat production and productivity under four thermal environments (E1:15th November, E2:30th November, E3:15th December, E4:30 December) and three sowing methods (M1: Broadcast, M2: Line sowing and M3: Bed planting) were evaluated in a three replication with Split Plot Design. (E1: thermal environment) recorded significantly plant height (92.78 and 91.44 cm) dry matter accumulation (1270 and 1253 g m-2), number of tillers (429 and 420) and leaf area index (4.71 and 4.75) number of tillers (436 and 422 m-2) spike length (9.78 and 9.5 cm), grains spike-1 (59.33 and 53.89) and test weight (48.89 and 47.78 g) grain yield maximum (5262 and 4941 kg ha-1) straw yield (7441 and 7594 kg ha-1) harvest index (41.36 and 39.34). The crop sown on E1 and method M3 was maximum production and best treatment combination. The maximum number of tillers (430 and 421), spike length (9.54 and 9.13 cm), grain spike-1(52.25 and 49.33) and test weight (43.75 and 42.25 g), grain yield (5050 and 4761 kg ha-1) straw yield (7557 and 7655 kg ha-1) harvest index (39.90 and 38.16) in M3. The method M3 was found significantly superior over the rest of methods.
