Grading of Selected Barani Wheat Varieties on the Basis of Physical Characteristics
Ayesha Ahmad and Tariq Masud

Abstract:
Eight commercial wheat varieties viz Faker-e-Sarhad, SMN-96, Saleem-2000, Khyber-87, Baktawar-92, Noshehra-96, Tatar and Saleem-2000 were tested for physical characteristic. It was observed that % dockage, test weight and thousand kernel weight showed significant variations due to wheat varieties and varied from 0.136-1.35%, 75.83-79.67 Kg hl-1 and 30.39-39.55 g respectively. However, non-significant differences were observed in length and width of the grains, which ranged from 7.50-8.00 mm and 4.17-4.97 mm. In general, investigations conclude superior performance of Khyber-87 as compared to other tested cultivars.
