Sowing Dates Effect on Some Grain Biochemical and Technological Characteristics of Certain Wheat Cultivars

M.A. Fergany, M.S. El-Habbal and M.E. El-Temsah

Two field experiments were carried out in two successive seasons of 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 at Agric. Experimental. Farm of Ain Shams Univ. To study the response of some bread wheat cultivars to sowing date. Each experiment included 15-treatment which were the combination between three wheat cultivars viz., Sakha 93, Giza 168 and Gemmiza 9 and five sowing dates i.e., October 1, October 16, November 1, November 16 and December 1. Split plot design in 6 replications was used. Results showed that variety Gemmiza 9 had significant highest Grain, Crude Protein Content (GCPC), test weight and 1000-grain weight. Meanwhile, mono and disaccharides and their total were slightly affected either by genetic make-up of the cultivar, sowing dates or their interaction. The maximum 1000-grain weight was obtained by sowing on 1st November. Sowing on 1st October produced the highest significant vitreosness percentage, GCPC, wet and dry gluten and statistically decreased by delaying sowing date. It could be conclude that sowing wheat cultivar Gemmiza 9 was the most adapted grown under the studied location.
