Quantitative and Qualitative Response of Three Wheat Varieties to Nitrogen Application
Azra Yasmeen and Shamshad Hussain Shah

Abstract:
The performance of three wheat varieties namely MH-97, Kharchia and Inqlab-91 treated with four nitrogen levels (0, 75, 125 and 175 kg ha -1) was studied under irrigated conditions at Faisalabad. The results revealed that MH-97 gave the maximum (2073.3 kg ha -1) grain yield, which was the result of larger leaf area plant -1, higher number of spike bearing tillers and more 1000-grain weight. 125 kg N ha -1 (F2) topped by producing taller plants, higher number of total tillers and 1000-grain weight except grain protein content which was the highest in case of F3 (175 kg N ha -1). The total number of tillers0 and number of spike bearing tillers were statistically similar in Inqlab-91 and MH-97 at 125 kg N ha -1 or 175 kg N ha -1, but were significantly different from Kharchia. Wheat variety MH-97 in comparison with the other two varieties was higher yielding and 125 kg N ha -1 was the most suitable nitrogen level.
