Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate new wheat genotypes at varying levels of nitrogen viz., 120, 150 and 180 kg N ha/ha under irrigated conditions. Different nitrogen levels brought a significant increase in grain and straw yield of wheat and the increase was observed only up to 150 kg N/ha. The increase in grain yield of wheat with 150 kg N/ha over 120 kg N/ha was 20 per cent. Among genotypes, HPW-155, a new wheat variety resulted in significantly highest grain yield but increase of straw yield was at par with VL 822.
