Author(s): Avtar Singh, Karampal Singh Brar and Navdeep Gandhi
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 T1 (HD-3086 Broadcast sowing), T2 (HD-3086 Bi-directional sowing at 22.5 cm spacing), T3 (HD-3086 Direction sowing at 15 cm spacing), T4 (PBW-725 Broadcast sowing), T5 (PBW-725 Bi-directional sowing at 22.5 cm spacing), T6 (PBW-725 Bi-directional sowing at 15 cm spacing) treatment. The experiment concluded that among the treatments T6 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.
