Abstract

A new high yielding wheat (Triticum aestivum) variety ‘WH 1105’ has been developed for timely sown cultivation,in high fertility and irrigated conditions in the North Western Plain Zone (NWPZ) of India during 2012. It has100cm plant height, dark green foliage; erect compact plant-type bearing parallel-dense, whitish long earheads,and distinctly developed anthocynin pigmentation of auricles. It is medium early (142 days) in maturity,having wide adaptability and good yield potential of 71.6 q ha-1. It exhibited excellent degree of resistance toyellow and brown rusts, flag smut, leaf blight and powdery mildew diseases prevalent in the area. It is betterin quality characters.WH 1105 is also better in nutrient. It is physiologically efficient genotype having desirableCTD, canopy temperature, chlorophyll fluorescence (Fv/Fm) and SPAD chlorophyll content; thus, indicating itssuitability under terminal heat stress conditions. It also depicts good percentage of extraction rate (69.1%) andthe protein content (12.4%) with better chapatti making score (7.60).
