Abstract

The experiment was conducted during the period from November 2014 to March 2015 in the experimental field of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Sher-e-Bangla Nagar, Dhaka to find out the effect of irrigation under varying sowing times on yield performance of wheat. The experiment comprised of two factors; Factors A: Irrigation (3 levels): I1: Irrigation up to field capacity; I2: Irrigation upto 1/2 of field capacity and I3: Irrigation upto1/4th of field capacity (at crown root initiation, flowering and grain filling stage); Factor B: Sowing time (4 levels at 10 days interval): S1: Sowing at 10 November; S2: Sowing at 20 November; S3: Sowing at 30 November and S4: Sowing at 10 December. The experiment was laid out in Split Plot Design with three replications. Irrigation was assigned in the main plot and sowing time was assigned in the sub-plot. The highest days to maturity was recorded from I1 while the lowest days to maturity was observed from I3. The highest days to maturity was observed from S1 while lowest days to maturity S4. I1 recorded the highest spike length, number of spike lets spike-1, number of grains spike-1, 1000 grain weight, grain yield, straw yield, biological yield and harvest index respectively compared to I3. S2 produced the highest results than that of S1 in spike length, number of spike lets spike-1, number of grains spike-1, 1000 grain weight, grain yield, straw yield, biological yield and harvest index respectively. Better grain yield performance of wheat was obtained from irrigation upto field capacity with sowing at 20 November.
