The experiment was conducted at, Field Experimentation Center, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Allahabad during rabi of 2017-18. For this study different wheat varieties were sown on different time in Randomized block design (RBD). First sowing was done as early sowing on 15 November and second sowing on 01 December as mid sowing for evaluating whether different sowing time affect growth and yield parameters such as plant height (cm), Grain filling duration (days), Spike length (cm), Spike weight (g), Number of spike per plant, physiological maturity (days), Grain yield per plant (g), Grain yield per spike, Harvest index, Test weight (g) were considered for evaluating growth and yield. Study showed that varieties sown early performed better than mid sown wheat varieties in terms of plant height (cm), spike length (cm), spike weight (g), number of spike per plant, grain yield per plant (g), grain yield per spike (g), harvest index, test weight (g). On the basis of 12 early sown wheat varieties, HD-2967 showed maximum number of spike per plant (8.33), spike length (13.98 cm), spike weight (130.00 g), grain yield per spike (17.94 g) and grain yield per plant (18.30 g), test weight (48.80 g) whereas PBW-550 showed minimum plant height (74.33 cm) and grain filling duration (32.00 days). In mid shown wheat varieties Super-252 showed high Number of spike per plant (8.33), spike length (12.36 cm), spike weight (113.33 g), grain yield per spike (15.40 g), grain yield per plant (18.21 g), harvest index (84.25), test weight (43.5 g).
Key word: Wheat varieties, Sowing time, Growth and Yield parameters.
