The field experiment was attempted to figure out the time of sowing for diverse cultivars of soybean in the agro-ecological environment of Charsadda, Khyberpakhtunkhwa. Experiment composed of planting windows (14th March, 21st March, 28th March, 4th April and 11th April) and two varieties (Swat-84 and Williams-82). The experiment was arranged in randomized complete block design with split plot adjustment having sowing windows in the main plot and genotypes in the subplot and replicated thrice. The data have been compiled on the number of pods per plant, the number of seeds per plant, height of the plants, 1000-weight of the seed, seed yield, biomass performance, protein content and oil percent. The statistical analysis of the data confessed significant differences between the means of attributes at contrasting sowing date treatments. The varieties with early sowing has assembled elevated yield and quality compared to delayed planting dates. The results have declared that a larger number of pods per plant and the number of seeds per plant were produced by 21 March and Williams-82. In the same way, the utmost seed yield (1648.10 kg ha-1 and 1441.23 kg ha-1) were also registered by 21th March, Williams-82 and 14th March, Williams-82, accordingly. Therefore, 21th March plantation was the outstanding for elevated yield of soybean. Whereas, among the two varieties Williams-82 proved the best results in Charsadda.
