The seeding rates were 100 and 150 kg ha1 while the nitrogen levels comprised 100, 150 and 200 kg ha1 with five split application treatments viz. full at sowing, full with first irrigation, half at sowing and half with first irrigation, two third at sowing+one third with first irrigation and one third at sowing+One third with first irrigation+one third with second irrigation along with a basic dose of 100 kg ha1 each of P and K applied at sowing. The crop was planted on December 19. The highest grain yield of 3585 kg ha1 was obtained from plots given nitrogen full at sowing at 150 kg ha1 followed by 3334 kg ha1 in plots given nitrogen in two splits i.e., two third at sowing and one third with first irrigation. However, higher seeding rate (150 kg ha1 ) tended to increase grain yield ha1 with a nitrogen rate of 150 kg ha1. By contrast, grain protein contents were the highest (12.26%) in crop fertilized with 150 kg ha1 full at sowing and seeded at 100 kg ha1.
