Description
A significant increase in wheat yield may be achieved through improved planting geometry and appropriate tillage technology. A planting geometry with uniform spatial distribution of plants results in better utilization of land and environmental resources by the crop (Chen et al., 2008). The sowing of wheat on raised beds and ridges is being adopted rapidly by the farmers in Mexico. This method enhances the germination count, improves yield by 10% giving water saving of 30-50%, along with the benefits of reduced lodging, increase in the efficiency of applied fertilizer and water, more water productivity, better utilization of solar radiation, and efficient drainage under high rainfall conditions (Ahmad et al., 2010a ; Sayre and MorenoRamos, 1997). Keeping in view the above scenario the studies were planned with the following objectives : 1. To compare the performance of various seed priming techniques under different irrigation regimes to improve germination, early emergence, crop establishment and yield enhancement of wheat under field conditions. 2. To evaluate different planting geometries for better crop growth, yield and water use efficiency. 3. To find out an appropriate combination of seed priming and planting geometry for productivity enhancement of late planted wheat crop under limited water supplies. Ultimately an effort was made to develop environment and farmer friendly agro-technology package for sustainable wheat production under scarce water supplies in arid region of Punjab.
