Effect of different doses of nitrogen and seed rate on various characters and seed yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Author(s): Mahipat Singh Yadav and CS Dhanai
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study the effects of different doses of nitrogen application on different seed rate a semi dwarf, high yielding with good quality traits on ‘K-8020’, variety of wheat was evaluated to study the effect of different seed rate and different doses of nitrogen application on germination percent, purity percent and yield of wheat. The results showed that different doses 100, 120 and 140 kg/ha nitrogen and 100, 125 and 150 kg/ha seed rate significantly out yielded the 100 kg/ha nitrogen and seed rate in seed yield, biological yield. Almost similar result were obtained in case of shoot length, plant height, dry matter (gm.), spike length (cm.), number of spike/ear, number of seeds/ spike, 1000 seed weight and harvest index. The application of 140 kg N/ha and 150 kg seed rate/ha was the best combination for getting higher seed yield with its better quality.
