Abstract: Field experiment was conducted during rabi 2016-17 at Research farm of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, India to study the influence of sowing times and cutting schedules on quality and economics of dual purpose wheat. The experiment was laid out in split plot with four sowing times as main plot treatments and five cutting schedules as sub plot treatments, replicated thrice. Among sowing times, 3rd week of October recorded significantly higher quality and yield parameters with net returns (81503 Rs./ha) and B:C (2.10). Among cutting schedules, higher reduction rate in all quality, economics and yield parameters over uncut wheat was recorded with delay in cutting of wheat for fodder purpose from 45 to 75 DAS. Among cutting schedules, cutting of wheat at 45 DAS was recorded with maximum value of all quality parameters and yield, while cutting at 55 DAS was found most profitable.
