A field experiment was carried out during Rabi season, 2020 at Wheat Breeding Experimental Field, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (SHUATS), Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of experimental site was sandy loam in texture and nearly neutral in soil reaction with (pH 6.7). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design and fourteen wheat genotypes were replicated fourfold. Study revealed that the genotype G12, i.e., NERI-312 recorded significantly higher plant height (100.50 cm), number of tillers/hill (10/hill), plant dry weight (26.14 g), length of the spike (13.5 cm), number of grains per spike (42.95), test weight (40.05 g), grain yield (4.18 t/ha) and straw yield (6.04 t/ha). It was evident that the genotype NERI-312 was found to be productive.
