Genotypic Variation in Wheat Genotypes under Agro Climatic Condition of Kaghan Valley

Nadar Khan, Muhammad Qasim, Sardar Ali and Nafees Sadique Kisana


Eleven wheat genotypes were evaluated during kharif season 2003 at Himalayan Agricultural Research Station Kaghan. The genotypes tested were Chakwal-86, Kohinoor-83, Pasban-90, Iqbal-2000, Chinab-2000, MH-97, Auqab-2000, Chakwal-97, Parwaz-94, Inqlab-91 and Punjab-96. Significant difference were found among genotypes for tillers/plant, number of grains/spike, thousand grain weight (g), days to maturity and grain yield (kg ha-1) where difference for spike length (cm) were found non significant. Maximum grain yield (1762 kg ha-1) was recorded by wheat genotype Chakwal-86 followed by wheat genotype Chakwal-97 (1678.99 kg ha-1) while minimum grain yield was noted in wheat genotype Kohinoor-83 (1069.900 kg ha-1).
