The field experiment was conducted at Tandojam, to evaluate the appropriate planting time of various wheat genotypes. It was observed that plant height, yield and yield contributing components were superior when the wheat crop was planted in Mid on November. The late planted crop in December significantly produced less yield and yield components. The optimum planting month observed was November, where most of the wheat genotypes reponded for maximum values. This may be due to favourable climatic conditions for gemination, growth and development. Among the tested cultivars, Sarsabz produced more grain yield as compared to Pavon and TJ-83. Thus, it is recommended that for middle part of Sindh Province, the sowing of wheat crop should be perfomed during the Mid of November where satisfactory yield could be achieved.
