Muhammad Yousaf, Amir Ahmad, M. Jahangir and T. Naseeb    

Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the response of canola to different sowing dates (SD) on growth and yield parameters of canola. The treatments included two canola varieties (Dunkled and Rainbow) and three sowing dates (11, 21 and 31st October (1999-2000). Dunkled variety planted on early sowing date (October 11) produced higher grain yield of 2111.05 kg ha-1 as compared to rainbow and late sowings, comparatively low seed yield of 1806 kg ha-1 was produced by sowing date of October 31. The different sowing dates effects significantly on number of primary branches/plant, number of secondary branches/plant, number of pods/plant and seed yield.
