Spring wheat Jinchin No.3 (early maturing) and Xiamai No.1 (late maturing) were sown on 10, 14 or 18 July 1982 in unirrigated hill fields in mid-Shanxi at 1000 m altitude. Grain yield and yield components were markedly affected by sowing date. Jinchin No.3 showed a faster and higher rate of grain filling, and was more flexible in terms of sowing date. It was tolerant of midsummer heat and showed longer green leaf duration.
