COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF SOME WHEAT VARIETIES FOR YIELD AND QUALITY ATTRIBUTES

DUNĂREANU IOANA CLAUDIA, BONEA DORINA

Abstract


Identifying high-yielding wheat varieties for various agro-climatic conditions is important because the farmers are mostly relying on these varieties for wheat production. This comparative study aimed to evaluate the performance of six wheat varieties for yield and some quality attributes, in conventional cropping system from Agricultural Research and Development Station Șimnic, Craiova. The experiment was laid out according to a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Statistical analysis of the data showed significant differences (p = 0.05) only for grain yield. The highest yield (4.03 t/ha) was recorded by the variety Litera followed by A 15 (3.90 t/ha) and Miranda (3.85 t/ha). The lowest yield was recorded by the variety Bezostaia (2.86 t/ha). It was observed that Bezostaia and Dacia varieties showed greater protein content (11.53% and 11.17%, respectively) than all other varieties, but these differences were statistically non-significant.
