Response of Wheat Varieties to Sowing Dates

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

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).
