Effect of Various Doses of Nitrogen on the Growth and Yield of Two Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Cultivars
Asghar Ali, M.Adil Choudhry, M. Asghar Malik, Rashid Ahmad and Saifullah

Abstract:
Response of two wheat cultivars namely Inqalab-91 and Punjab-96 to nitrogen levels of 0, 50, 100 and 150 kg ha–1 was studied under field conditions. The cultivar Inqalab-91 gave significantly higher grain yield than cultivar Punjab-96 due to more spike length, number of grains spike–1 and 1000-grain weight. Yield and yield components were also influenced significantly by nitrogen levels. The application of 150 kg N ha–1 produced maximum grain yield of 5.44 t ha–1 which was, however, statistically similar to that of 100 kg N ha–1. The increase in grain yield with nitrogen application was related to higher number of tillers m–2, spike length, number of grains spike–1 and 1000-grain weight.
