Screening of Wheat Germplasm for Various Phenological and Grain Yield Traits

Naeem Ahmad, Ahmad Zada, Muhammad Junaid, Akhtar Ali


Wheat germplasm were evaluated at experimental Farm of ARI, Mingora Swat, for various characteristics. The experiment was arranged in Randomized Complete Block design with three replications. A plot size of 4x5 m2 was maintained. Wheat Genotype,  WG6 took maximum (138) days to heading followed by Genotype WG13 with maximum of 136 days while Genotypes, WG1, WG3, WG5, and WG12 took minimum of 133 days to heading. Genotypes WG1 and WG12 took maximum (184) days to maturity while Genotype WG2 and WG8 matured earlier (175 days). Maximum plant height (103 cm) at maturity was recorded in wheat Genotype WG11 which was significantly more than that of all other used Genotypes. The minimum of 88 cm plant height was recorded in Genotypes WG14 and WG19. Significantly higher yield of 4642 kg per hectares was recorded in Genotype WG15 followed by Genotype WG20 with grain yield of 4442 kg per hectares. It is concluded that variety well adapted to the agro-ecological conditions of Swat can be selected from these Genotypes for cultivation.
