Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Zonal Research Station, Nagina, Bijnor to assess the performance of new wheat varieties under timely sown condition. The experiment was laid out in Split Plot Design with three replications. The main plot treatments comprised of 2 dates of sowing i.e., 15th November and 25th November in main plots and four wheat varieties HD 2967, HD 3086, WH 1105 and HUW 666 in sub plots. The soil of experiment site was sandy loam in nature having organic carbon 0.46, Av. P 18 kg/ha, Av. K 245 kg/ha and pH 7.4. The early sowing of wheat (15th November) produced significantly higher grains yield (55.83 q/ha) than delayed sowing (52.73 q/ha). Earliness in 10 days of sowing of wheat crop in such climatic change conditions influences wheat yield upto 5.87 per cent. Among the varieties significantly higher yield attributing traits and grain yield (54.28 q/ha) was recorded with HD3086 which was at par with HD 2967 and significantly superior over other varieties under test.
