Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at the Directorate of Oilseeds, Agriculture Research Institute, Tandojam, Pakistan, during the spring season of 2001-02 to observe the effects of various water stresses on the nodulation and yield components of soyabean cv. Swat-84. Treatments comprised: two (at 40 and 60 days), three (40, 55 and 70 days), four (40, 55, 70 and 85 days), five (40, 55, 70, 85 and 100 days) and six irrigation frequencies (25, 40, 55, 70, 85 and 100 days). Nodulation, plant height, branches per plant, pods per plant and seeds per pod, seed index and seed yield were significantly affected by irrigation frequencies and all the traits were maximum upon treatment with 6 irrigations. Swat-84 recorded the highest seed yield of 1054 kg/ha with 6 irrigations under Tandojam climatic conditions.
