The study was carried out during the year 2015-16 to investigate the impact of harvesting times and drying methods on yield attributes of promising wheat TJ-83. Eight parameters of economic importance were studied which included: moisture content (%), plant height (cm), grains spikes m-2, spikelets spike-1, spike length (cm), harvesting index (%), biological yield (kg ha-1) and grain yield (kg ha-1). The results showed that wheat crop harvested on 130 (DAS) resulted in maximum 11.87% moisture content, 83.33 cm plant height, 54.33 grains spikes m-2, 12.11 spikelets spike-1, 19.33 cm spike length, 48.18% harvest index, 9946.67 kg biological yield ha-1 and 4792.00 kg grain yield ha-1. In case of drying methods, bag store resulted in highest 11.78% moisture content, 81.25 cm plant height, 51.75 grains spikes m-2, 10.91 spikelets spike-1, 18.66 cm spike length, 47.39% harvest index, 9693.8 kg biological yield ha-1 and 4453.8 kg grain yield ha-1 followed by bag (open). Lease figure yield ha-1 and 4372.7 kg grain yield ha-1.
