Author(s): A. VERMA, R. CHATRATH AND G. P. SINGH
Abstract: Highly significant change in wheat production for irrigated timely sown, late sown and restricted irrigated timely sown trials had been observed during 2008-09 to 2017-18 in the Central Zone of India under multi environment trials. BLUP’s of genotypes yield were predicted by efficient factor analytic approach. Production elevated to the level of 52, 48 and 39q ha-1 for irrigated timely, late and restricted irrigated timely sown conditions, respectively. Base yield levels in year 2008-09 were 4901, 4112 and 2405 kg ha-1. Significant straight line equations depicted the 0.48, 0.65 and 1.77q yield added trials over the years.
