Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Research area of CCSHAU, Hisar during rabi 2016-17 in split plot design having four sowing times in main plots and five cutting schedules in sub plots with three replications to find out the effect of growth and yield of dual purpose wheat. Among sowing times, 3rd week of October sowing was found most suitable for both uncut as well as dual purpose wheat. Among cutting schedules, higher rate of reduction was recorded with delay in cutting of fodder from 45 DAS upto75 DAS. For dual purpose, tall wheat (C306) sown during 3rd week of October and harvested at 55 DAS for fodder purpose was found most suitable having green fodder yield (14,313 kg ha-1 additional over uncut), grain yield (3,710 kg ha-1, with a reduction of 9.3 percent over uncut), straw yield (7,820 kg ha-1 with a reduction of 19.7 % over uncut).
