Field experiment was conducted at Research Farm of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during rabi season of 2005-06 to study the response of barley BH-393 to three sowing dates and four row spacings. Delay in sowing date of barley beyond 10th November resulted in a significant decrease in grain yield. The grain yield of barley reduced by 13 kg/ha/day with 20 days delay in sowing starting from 10 November and subsequently a further delay of 20 days i.e. from 30 November to 20 December led to 9.5 kg/ha/day. Among the row spacings the yield and yield attributes were highest with 15 cm row spacing as compared to other row spacings.
