Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) during Rabi season of 2013-14 and 2014-15. The growth attributes plant height, no of shoot m-2 and leaf area index was significantly superior 1.2 IW/CPE ratio with PBW 502 variety at all growth stages except 30 days after sowing.PBW-502 (V2) wheat cultivar recorded significantly higher yield of crop over PBW-343 (V1). Moisture regime 1.0 IW/CPE (I3) and the optimum dose of sulphur 20kg/ha (S2) has been found most suitable for wheat production. yield attributes like highest number of effective tillers m-2, no. of fertile spikelets spike-1, spike length, number of grains/spike and 1000-grain weight were also recorded highest values with sulphur level of 20 kg/ha which was significantly to other than dose of sulphur. Wheat cultivar PBW-502 (V2) accrued the maximum net return with B: C ratio of 2.65 and 2.47 under 1.0 IW/CPE moisture regime (I3) with 20kg/ ha sulphur dose (S2) respectively both the years of experimentations.
