A study was conducted during rabi 2013-14 at Barley Research Area of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with five date of sowing (30th October, 10th, 20th, 30th November and 10th December) in main plots and four cultivars (BH 902, RD 2552, DWRUB 52 and RD 2668) kept in sub plots replicated thrice. Overall results depicted that growth parameter of barley viz, plant height, dry matter, LAI and number of tillers decreased significantly with delay in sowing. Crop sown on 30th October produced significantly higher values of growth parameters as compared to but it was statistically at par with 10th November sowing date. Significantly taller plants and higher dry matter accumulation at all the growth stages were recorded in BH 902 followed by RD 2552 than all other cultivars. At all the stages of crop growth, maximum number of tillers was recorded in DWRUB52 and LAI in BH 902 as compared to other cultivars.
