Conduct of multi-location barley international trials in target regions
Multilocation barley international trials for spring barley under low and high input environments have been conducted in Morocco, Lebanon and India. Another set of winter barley trials were conducted at Ankara, in Turkey. More than 410 genotypes (320 hulled and 90 hulless types) were evaluated in advanced yield trials at three test sites i.e. Marchouch (Morocco), Amlaha (India) and Terbol (Lebanon). Nine new genotypes having higher grain yield then best checks have been identified (Table 2.2) across the two environments. However, at individual locations a large number of genotypes (35 at Terbol and 13 at Marchouch) were identified superior to the best checks.
