Response of wheat (Triticum aestivum) to sowing time with varying levels of spacing

Author(s): SK Patel, PM Patel, JR Patel and VB Gohil
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Instructional Farm, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, and Sardarkrushinagar during Rabi season of the year 2017-18 on “Response of wheat (Triticum aestivum) to sowing time with varying levels of spacing”. Twelve treatments comprising of sowing time and spacings viz., T1 : 15th November + Broadcasting; T2 : 15th November + 18 cm between two rows; T3 : 15th November + 22 cm between two rows; T4 : 25th November + Broadcasting; T5 : 25th November +18 cm between two rows; T6 : 25th November + 22 cm between two rows; T7 : 5th December + Broadcasting; T8 : 5th December + 18 cm between two rows; T9 : 5th December + 22 cm between two rows; T10 : 15th December + Broadcasting T11 : 15th December + 18 cm between two rows amd T12 : 15th December + 22 cm between two rows were tried in strip plot design with four replications. In all cases, The yield and yield attributes of wheat i.e. number of earhead per plant (9.5), number of grains per earhead (41.0), grain yield per plant (24 g), grain yield (4523 kg/ha) and straw yield (7203 kg/ha) significantly higher with wheat sown at 25th November over other treatments. In case of spacings number of earhead per plant (9.4), number of grains per earhead (41.0), grain yield per plant (23.5 g), grain yield (4632 kg/ha) and straw yield (7014 kg/ha) were significantly higher with respect to wheat sown with 18 cm between two rows over all other treatments. Interaction effect of sowing time and spacing i.e. 25th November + 18 cm between two rows gave significantly higher grain (5291 kg/ha) and straw yield (8649 kg/ha) the other interactions.
