Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:

Yield potential of a crop is dependent upon genetic and environmental factors. The environmental factors can be manipulated to exploit the maximum yield potential of a variety. As new varieties are developed or introduced into an area, new and efficient cultural practices must be developed. This study at Tulelake was conducted under irrigation to determine the effects of planting dates and seeding rates on the yield and other agronomic characteristics of wheat, barley and triticale.
