SUMMARY

The effect of sowing date on the performance of oat (variety HJ 8) under three different dates of sowing was studied research farm at department Seed science and technology Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar (Haryana), India. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design three replication for each treatment. The results revealed that the crop sown at normal date of sowing showed its superiority in yield and yield components over late and very late sowing by registering maximum seedling establishment (82%), plant height at maturity (170.53 cm), length of inflorescence (44.20 cm), flower per inflorescence (76.50), ovule to seed ratio (0.949), number of seeds per inflorescence (72.60), 1000 seed weight (26.54 g), standard germination (96%), field emergence index (5.5) and seed yield (19 q/ha). It was concluded from the study that more yield can be achieved by sowing the crop timely in the first fortnight of November.
