Quantitative parameters for the wheat crop as influenced by different sowing techniques were studied in the present research work. Hence, routine and cross sowings were adopted to check their efficacy for yield attributes in wheat cultivars viz. Inqilab-91, Daman-98 and Dera-98. The research trials were conducted for two years at the experimental area of Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University, Dera Ismail Khan. The split plot design was used for conducting the trials. The results showed that wheat cultivar Dera 98 produced maximum grain yield in both years of experimentation when cross drill technique (30x30cm2) was adopted. This technique interacted significantly with varieties for plant height, spikes m-2, grains spike-1, 1000 grain weight, biological yield, straw yield and grain yield. All varieties under experimentation showed a significant effect as noted for spikes m-2, spike length, spikelets spike-1, grains spike-1 and 1000-grain weight during both years.
