    Abstract: Wheat is the third most produced cereal in the world after maize and rice. Due to ever increasing human population and decreased area under cultivation, there is a pressure on limited land resource to meet basic demands of increased population towards food, fodder, pulses, oilseeds etc. The potential to increase arable cropping area is severely lim...
