Suitable Irrigation to the crop is an important attribute for potential yield of among various crops. Present scenario of weather fallouts at destructing besides allocating rainfall pattern leading to different water stress. In some part of U.P, especially eastern U.P will face in temperature (3 to 5ºC up to 2050) as per SAPCC, due to increase in rate of transpiration that will rise demand. To cope up with coming situation the experiment was conducted at Central Agricultural field, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, U.P on wheat variety (HD-2967). Hydrogel and Chitosan were taken under different concentration to evaluate the efficacy of hydrogel on wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Physio-biochemical and yield under different levels of Irrigation and Chitosan. Absorbing the water and retaining water in the soil and by reducing the loss of water through stomata by forming a layer of waxy coating, is the aspect to be considered to deal with such arriving future. Superabsorbent polymer can absorb large quantities of water and retain in soil and Antitranspirant may reduce the loss of water via transpiration.Hydrogel (50%) and Chitosan (100%,75% and 50%) with twenty-five treatments and three replications along with control were laid out in randomized block design Result on Growth and Yield under soil application of Hydrogel was observed Treatment T1 (100% HG and 100% CHT) showed best results, however T2 was statistically at par with T1, whereas comparing with control T0 (100% IR 70 Lit +NO SAP +NO AT.
