Effect of varieties (Triticum aestivum L.) under extended sowing times on yield, protein content, nutrient uptake and soil properties of wheat


Author(s): AY Mahajan, AB Mohite, YR Jadhav and JB Patil

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 and its effect on uptake of nutrient and available nutrient status of soil. 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 significantly highest values of grain yield (39.90 q ha-1), straw yield (61.58 q ha-1) and protein content (11.30 per cent) were recorded in sowing time at 47th MW (19th-25th Nov). Also variety NIAW-1994 recorded significantly maximum grain yield, straw yield and protein content. Significantly more uptake of nutrient (NPK) by wheat was recorded when crop was sown in 47th MW and in variety NIAW-1994. Maximum organic carbon and available nutrient in soil (NPK) after harvest of wheat was recorded when crop was sown in 47th MW and in variety NIAW-1994.
