A field experiment was conducted during 2012-2016 at Agricultural Research Station, Vadgaon Maval, Tal. Maval, Dist. Pune for five years to find out interaction on transplanting windows with different paddy varieties in relation to climate change. From the pooled data it was observed that the transplanting of paddy seedlings of variety PhuleSamruddhiin2nd week of July produced the highest mean number of panicles per plant(20) , mean number of grains per panicle (221), mean grain yield (61.34 q/ha) and straw yield (70.61 q/ha) with highest mean net monetary returns ( Rs 83487/ha).Hence timely transplanting of paddy (2nd week of July) ultimately increases the productivity of paddy. But if monsoon is delayed up to first week of July, then economical grain yield (48.73 q/ha), straw yield (56.37 q/ha) and mean net monetary returns (Rs56221/ha) can be obtained by transplanting the seedlings (14-25 days old) of variety Phule Samruddhi up to 4th week of July.
