  Planting method plays an important role in the placement of seed at proper depth, which ultimately affects crop growth. The selection of suitable planting method for wheat is dependant upon the time of planting, availability of soil water at planting time, amount of residue in the field and availability of planting machine. A study was conducted in 1998-99 at three different sites in the rice-wheat area of Punjab to find out the effect of different planting techniques on yield and yield components of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Planting methods included bed formation + drill sowing (BDS), broad casting + bed formation (BCB), broadcasting (BC) and drill sowing (DS). Plant emergence was higher in drill sowing method in comparison with other methods. At harvesting, number of heads m-2) was higher with BCB and BDS planting system as compared to broadcasting and drill sowing methods. Biological yield was significantly higher in flat planted wheat (broadcasted and drill sown) in comparison with bed planted wheat (BB and DB) Although number of heads m-2), spike length and number of grains per spike were significantly higher in raised bed wheat (broadcasted and drilled beds) in comparison with the flat sown wheat (broadcasting and drill sowing) but wheat grain yields were lower in raised bed wheat than flat sown wheat. In raised bed planted wheat, 1000 grain weight was also significantly lower as compared to flat sown wheat.
