Evaluating the performance of wheat varieties under late sown irrigated condition in Bundelkhand zone
Publication Date : 30/07/2015
Delay in time of sowing in Rice-wheat cropping system is perhaps the one of the major factors responsible for low crop yield. Farmers were also practiced late sown wheat due to late release of canal or wheat grown after a catch crop of Toria during August – December. In this study, performance of wheat cultivars (viz. MP-4010, HD-2864, Lok-1, K-7903 and GW-273) sown on December 10 to 25 was evaluated. Crop establishment was impaired of timely sown cultivar (GW-273) when sowing was delayed owing low temperature, which resulted in poor crop stand and ultimately the final yield. With delay planting, wheat cultivar MP-4010 out yielded due to short duration and tolerance to temperature stress at reproductive phase (32-390C) followed by K-7903, Lok-1 and HD-2864.
