ABSTRACT

 

The research was performed, at Agronomic Research Area, Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University Dera Ismail Khan, to assess the impact of sowing time and seeding density on grain yield of wheat variety Gomal-08. Treatments included three dates of sowing as D1 (Oct-25), D2 (Nov-20), D3 (Dec-15) and three seeding rates (kg ha-1) of S1-100, S2-120, S3-150. Almost all yield parameters showed significant variability among treatments means. Maximum grain spike-1(g), number of fertile tillers m-2, spike length (cm), economic yield (t ha-1) and thousand grain weight (g) were recorded in D1(Oct-25) and D2 (Nov-20) with S1 and S2 as compared to late planted wheat with higher seed rate applied.
