A field experiment was conducted at the Forestry Nursery and Research Farm of Department of Environmental Sciences & NRM, College of forestry, SHUATS, Allahabad during Rabi 2016-17. The experiment was conducted in 33 factorial randomized complete block design with three dates of sowing (viz. 25 oct, 10 Nov and 25nov), 3varieties (RD-2035, JYOTI, RD 2035 and BH-393) and 3irrigation (5,4 and 3 irrigation) with 3replications. The interaction effects of date of sowing and irrigation schedule on yield attributes of barley varieties. The results revealed that spike length of barley crop was significantly influenced by different dates of sowing, varieties and irrigation schedules. the maximum number of spike and grain yield spike length were recorded with variety JYOTI, sowing of barley on 25thNov and 3 irrigations. Sowing of barley variety jyoti on 25th Nov along with 3 irrigations resulted in maximum spike length (15.27 cm), number of spike (29.16) and grain yield (55.31 q/ha).The lowest agro meteorology parameter was recorded in 25th Nov.
