The study has revealed that there is a sufficient potential increasing wheat production in Madhya Pradesh by provides quality seeds of improved variety, balance dose of fertilizers and awareness of irrigation schedules of wheat crop. Under demonstration is a most suitable method for assessing the performance of improved verities of wheat cultivar GW-322, GW-273 and MP-1142 respectively with the existing cultivars LOK-1 and Sujata under different irrigation levels. The results of demonstrations shows a greater impact on farmers face due to significant increase average in crop yield 47.1, 60.0, 52.6 and 68.4% respectively over local check. Which results in not only adopting these varieties in large scale but also some of the farmers have started producing seeds of these improved varieties and maximum yield was found of water loving and fertilizers responsive variety of wheat viz GW-322, GW-273 and MP1142 (57.8, 55.0 and 52.1 q/ha) respectively under four irrigation at all definable growth stages as compared to less responsible/frequency of irrigation of existing variety of wheat LOK-1 and Sujata (46.2 and 34.0 q/ha). And highest B:C ratio was obtained in wheat cultivar GW-322 (1:2.7) followed by GW-273 and MP-1142 under demonstration as compared to traditional variety of wheat Lok-1 and Sujata (1:2.2 and 1:2.1).
