Abstract:
An on farm research entitled “On Farm evaluation of alternative Varieties of Wheat suitable for Hathras District of Uttar Pradesh” was conducted during three consecutive Rabi seasons, at farmer’s fields of District Hathras, to find out the best suitable variety of wheat for the area. The field experiment was laid out in three replications (at three locations) with four treatments in eight villages of four blocks. On Farm trials were conducted according to standard recommended practices of wheat at farmers’ field with three new high yielding wheat varieties namely Pb W-550, WH-711 and Pb. W.-502 and compared with existing popular variety Pb W 343. The results revealed that all three tested varieties of wheat recorded higher grain yield than the locally popular variety Pb W 343. The averaged data of three years showed that the variety Pb W-550 recorded highest yield (45.30 q/ha) followed by WH-711 (43.43 q/ha) and Pb W-502 (42.93 q/ha) with yield increment of 12.88%, 8.22% and 6.97% respectively over the variety Pb W 343. The highest gross return was also recorded with variety Pb W-550 (Rs. 69100), net income Rs. 46800(17.06% higher than Pb W 343) with B:C ratio of 3.10. Also maximum additional income of Rs 7.92 for additional investment of one rupee recorded for Pb W 550. It was concluded that for obtaining higher grain yield, straw yield, gross and net income with higher B: C ratio from wheat, variety Pb W-550 may be adopted with recommended package of Practice under Hathras conditions of Uttar Pradesh.
