The present experiment entitled “Assessment of late sown wheat (Triticum aestivum
L.) Genotypes for variability parameters under Mandsaur agro-climatic conditions”, was conducted in Rabi
-2019-20 at the experimentation field, Department of Agriculture, Mandsaur University, Mandsaur. The experiment was carried out randomized block design with three replications. The 20 genotypes were used in the study which are well adopted for Central India on 10 quantitative characters i.e. Days to 50% flowering, Plant height, Flag leaf length, Flag leaf width, Number of tillers/plant, Spike length, Days to maturity, Grain yield/plant, Biological yield/plant and Harvest index. On the basis of Per se
performance for grain yield per plant genotype JW-3288 followed by JW-1203 were found promising as they showed high value for grain yield and its components of wheat and genotype RVW-4106 was found earliest which is desirable. For direct selection parameters such as Plant Height, Flag leaf length, Flag leaf width, spike length and Harvest index can be improved by directional and restricted selection.
