Yield and Yield Components of Different Cultivars of Wheat Barley and Oat Under Rainfed Conditions

Wajid Ali Shah, Jehan Bakht, Muhammad Shafi and Muhammad Azim Khan    

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study yield and yield components of different cultivars of wheat, barley and oat under rainfed conditions. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that days to emergence, number of leaves tillers-1, number of tillers plant-1, number of spikes plant-1, spikes m-2, grains spike-1, days to heading, thousand grains weight, days to maturity, grain weight and biological yield was significantly affected by different cultivars of wheat, barley and oat. Mean value of the data indicated that those plots which were seeded with full green (oat) produced taller plants and more spikes plant-1. Similarly, fork deer (oat) gave more grains spike-1 and biological yield. Dir local (barley) produced maximum thousand-grains weight. Mean value of the data also indicated that maximum grain yield was produced by avon (oat). When cost benefit ratio was taken into an account Inqualib-91 gave maximum net profit when compared with other crops under study.
