Response of Wheat Varieties to Sowing Dates

M. Aslam, Manzoor Hussain, M. Akhtar, M.S. Cheema and Liaquat Ali

Abstract:
The study was conducted to evaluate the appropriate sowing time of newly evolved wheat varieties/cultivars under Bahawalpur conditions. The study included 6 sowing dates started form Ist November up to 15th January of year 1999-2000 to 2000-2001 with equal intervals of fifteen days and five varieties/cultivars viz., 2236, 2098, 2219 punjnad-1 with inqlab, 91 as standard one. Regardless of varieties/cultivars the best results were obtained when wheat was sown after Ist and before 15th November of year 1999 to 2000. However wheat variety punjnad-1 gave significantly higher weights in a wide range of sowing period i.e., Ist to 30th November. The highest mean grain yield of 5315 kg ha-1 was obtained when crop was sown on 15th November (D2) followed by 5268 kg ha-1 for sowing on Ist November (D1).
