Abstract: An experiment entitled, “Performance of wheat varieties under extended sowing times” was conducted on medium black soil during Rabi, 2016-17 at Kolhapur to find out suitable sowing time and varieties of wheat under extended sowing times. The experiment was laid out in split plot design viz. five sowing times viz. 45thMW, 47th MW, 49th MW, 51th MW and 1st MW as main plot treatment and four varieties viz. NIAW-301(Trimbak), NIAW-917 (Tapovan), NIAW-34 (Niphad -34) and NIAW-1994 (Phule Samadhan) as sub plot treatments with three replications. The growth and development of wheat measured in terms of plant height, number of leaves, total number of tillers m2, leaf area and total dry matter per plant was recorded higher when sowing was done at 47th MW (19th- 25th Nov.). The yield contributing character such as length of spike, number of spikelets spike-1 was higher when crop sown at 47th MW (19th-25th Nov.). The significantly superior grain yield (39.90 q ha-1) and Straw yield (61.58 q ha-1) was recorded when wheat crop sown at 47th MW (19th-25th Nov). All the growth attributing characters and yield attributing characteristics influence significantly due to different varieties, and higher values are recorded in wheat varieties NIAW-1994. The significantly highest values of grain yield (37.48 q ha-1), straw yield (58.52 q ha-1) as well as harvest index (38.48 percent) were recorded by variety NIAW-1994 as compared to other varieties.
