Effects of sowing dates on phenology, radiation interception and yield of wheat
Keywords:Growing Degree Days (GDD), Heat Use Efficiency (HUE), Radiation Use Efficiency (RUE), Wheat etc.
An experiment was conducted during rabi seasons of 2015-16 and 2016-17 to study the phenology, accumulation of growing degree days (GDD), helio-thermal unit (HTU), photo-thermal unit (PTU), Heat use efficiency (HUE), Radiation use efficiency (RUE)and to assess the effects of thermal and radiation regimes on wheat at research farm of Department of Agricultural Meteorology, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during rabi seasons of 2015-16 and 2016-17.
The twenty-seven treatment combinations were tested in split plot design with three replications. The main plot treatments consist of three date of sowing, i.e., D1- 2nd fortnight of November, D2- 1st fortnight of December, D3- 2nd fortnight of December and sub plot treatments consist of three varieties, i.e., V1- WH 1105, V2- DPW 621-50 and V3- HD 2967.
Daily meteorological data recorded at Agromet observatory near the experimental plot was used for computation of agrometerological indices, i.e., heat unit (HU), heliothermal unit (HTU), photothermal unit (PTU), heat use efficiency (HUE) and radiation use efficiency (RUE).
