Abstract:
The Experiment was carried out at the field of S.Boota Singh at village Midda Tehsil Malout and District Shri Muktsar Sahib. The crop was grown in Rabi season of 2017-18 to study the effect of different sowing methods on yield of wheat crop. The crop was sown on November 20, 2017. The following treatments are T<sub>1 </sub>(HD-3086 Broadcast sowing), T<sub>2</sub> (HD-3086 Bi-directional sowing at 22.5 cm spacing), T<sub>3 </sub>(HD-3086 Direction sowing at 15 cm spacing), T<sub>4 </sub>(PBW-725 Broadcast sowing), T<sub>5</sub> (PBW-725 Bi-directional sowing at 22.5 cm spacing), T<sub>6 </sub>(PBW-725 Bi-directional sowing at 15 cm spacing) treatment. The experiment concluded that among the treatments T<sub>6</sub> has performed better in parameters like plant height (107.2 cm), dry matter accumulation (21.6g), 1000 grain weight (42.3g), yield per acre (27.2q) and harvesting index (45.94%). It is concluded from the experiment that higher yield can be obtained by bi-direction method of sowing at 15 cm spacing.
