Wheat production largely depends on adaptability to environmental conditions and agronomic practices. Timely supply of irrigation water and proper variety selection strategy required for higher wheat production, water is one of the most important factors which is necessary for proper growth and development of crop plants. Insufficient and improper application of irrigation leads to drastic reduction in production. In view of these facts, present experiment entitled “Performance of wheat varieties under different irrigation scheduling in zero tillage” was carried out at Soil Science Research farm, CCS HAU, Hisar during rabi 2021-22. The experimental work was conducted in split - plot design with three replications. Three different levels of irrigation based on crop growth stages at DAS viz., Five irrigations at CRI,45,65,85,105 DAS, four irrigations at CRI,45,65,105 DAS and three irrigations at CRI,65,105 DAS, were and only allotted to sub - plots, while four wheat varieties viz,. WH 1270, WH 1184, WH 1105 and WH 1142 were allocated randomly to main-plots. Results revealed that wheat variety WH 1184 was showed that number of effective tillers per meter row length (77.7), spike length (12.73 cm), number of grains per spike (70.55) and grain wt. per spike (2.56g) were significantly higher over the other varieties. The variety WH 1184 provide higher grain yield (55.75q/ha) under zero tillage which was significantly higher than varieties WH 1270 (53.86q/ha), WH-1105 (50.85q/ha) and WH 1142(42.66q/ha), respectively. The application of five irrigation under zero tillage was produced significantly higher grain yield (52.26q/ha) of wheat over the other irrigation levels. The effective tillers per meter row length (73.91), spike length (11.75cm), grains per spike (61.16) and test weight (39.33g) were significantly higher with five irrigation under zero tillage practice.
