Among different varieties SIA 2644, recorded significantly maximum plant height (109.81 cm), number of leaves plant-1 (45.69), leaf area (701.14 plant cm-2), grain yield (1870.90 kg ha-1), straw yield (3980.71 kg ha-1) and harvest index (0.32) as compared to other varieties like HMT-1 and Local. Among different dates of sowing crop sown on June 30 found significantly higher plant height (114.63), number of leaves plant-1 (49.38), leaf area (738.95 plant cm-2), grain yield (2049.25 kg ha-1), straw yield (4261.56 kg ha-1) and harvest index (0.33) as compared to July 30 and August 30 dates of sowing.
