Abstract: An experiment entitled “Effect of Different Sowing Environment on Growth and Yield of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Varieties” was conducted at research farm, FOA, Main Campus Chatha of SKUAST-Jammu during kharif season of 2016-17. The soil of experiment site was sandy clay loam in texture with slightly alkaline in reaction (pH-7.9), medium in organic carbon, low in available nitrogen and medium in available phosphorus and potassium. The treatments consisted of three different sowing dates (4th November, 19th November and 4th December 2016) and three wheat varieties, HD-2967, RSP-561 and RAJ-3077 were taken. The experiments were laid in a randomized complete block design with three replications and spacing of 20 cm. The crop was fertilized with 100 kg N, 50 kg P and 25 kg/ha through urea, diammonium phosphate (DAP) and muriate of potash (MOP) respectively. The data showed significant effects of different sowing time. The highest grain yield was obtained from 4th November planting date 34.4 q ha-1 which was at par with 19th November planting date 31.8 q ha-1. Whereas, among the different varieties, HD-2967 recorded highest grain yield 32.8 q ha-1 which was at par with Raj-3077.
