  Dwarfing genes (Rht1 and Rht2) have been extensively used for enhancing the grain yield in bread wheat. Ten semi-dwarf wheat genotypes having either Rht1 or Rht2 dwarfing genes were evaluated at Nuclear Institute of Agriculture, Tandojam, for yield and yield components. Significant differences in grain yield and yield components were observed in genotypes under study showing effects of dwarfing genes. Genotype SI88123 (Rht1) had medium plant height (95.25 cm), higher number of tillers/plant (6.90), and the highest grain yield/plant (8.10 g). Sarsabz (Rht1) with higher plant height (101.85 cm), reduced number of tillers per plant (3.55) and fertile spikes/plant had higher grain yield per spike (2.56 g). The short statured genotype SI8878 possessed significantly the highest number of grains/spike and considerably good yield/plant. Number of productive spikes established very high correlation with grain yield per plant in all the genotypes. The intensity of relationship varied from genotype to genotype.

  To assess the genotypic response and seasonal (environmental) effects for grain yield in bread wheat, multi-locational trials of newly developed genotypes were conducted during two wheat-growing seasons in Sindh. Grain yield is a complex character, attributed to genotype (G), environment (E) and GxE interactions. The highly significant and visible seasonal effects and their interactions to genotypes were observed as for as the grain yields are concerned. Environments, genotypes, GxE interactions and genotype x year interactions were also highly significant, which suggests perceptible seasonal effects. Two high yielding advanced genotypes SD-1200/14 and SI91195 confirmed superiority in yield and wide stability and adaptation over environments during both seasons, thus, less responsive to seasonal variations. Tando Jam, Sanghar and N. Feroze were identified as the high yielding sites, consequently, had favourable environments for wheat crop during both seasons.
