Abstract:

Ten genotypes of wheat (2006, 2005, 2134, 2013, Pasban-90, Marvi, Sarsabz, Sarcc-3 and Sarcc-1) were evaluated for drought resistance in Faisalabad, Pakistan, during 2005-06. Irrigation was given 3 times, twice or once at different intervals/stages. Data on plant height, number of productive tillers per plant, number of spikelets per spike, spike length, number of grains per spike, yield per plant, and 1000-grain weight were recorded and subjected to the analysis for variance. The effect of water stress significantly varied on the different morphological attributes. The values of all parameters decreased, whereas the sterility percentage increased, with the decrease in the number of irrigation. The highest grain yields per plant was recorded for Sarsabz and Sarcc-3, suggesting that both cultivars can be grown under water stress.
