Abstract

In this paper an effort has been made to conduct a detailed descriptive study of all the measurable parameters surveyed by Agriculture Department, each year that influence wheat production in the Punjab, Pakistan. A descriptive study of all individuals as well as interaction of various allied variables has been carried out to assess their influence on the production / variation of wheat. For this purpose a data of 25036 cases comprising almost 1.2 million values have been fed and used. Results have been compiled independently on districts, divisions and then on provincial levels to observe the impact of variables on all the levels. The detailed descriptive study of wheat is helpful in the model development for projection of yield and also for making various recommendations to farmers regarding different inputs / parameters of wheat resulting a conversion of a subjective approach about the variables into objective one and ultimately an enhancement in the crop production. Such detailed descriptive study of wheat is an unprecedented effort in the country.
