dc.description.abstractThe Vicia sativa aggregate, which includes the common vetch, is a complex of six closely related tax a which combines cultivated, weedy and wild forms. In this study 454 accessions with an emphasis on Mediterranean and Central Asian accessions have been compared for 22 key agro-morphological and phonological characters. The agronomic potential of the different members of the aggregate is assessed and useful variation existing in the collection is determined. Geographic patterns of the agronomic variation are studied to determine sources of useful variation. In both sub sp. cordata and sub sp. sativa accessions were found which had higher yields than the checks, consisting of three promising accessions. Sub sp. macrocarpa needs a longer growing season than the other tax a to reach its full potential. The other three tax a in the aggregate all had quite low yields. Important variation in shattering of pod sand in tolerance to moderate frost and resistance to the Sitona weevil was found in most subspecies of the aggregate. Variation in phenological characters appeared to be related to the latitude from which the accession was collected.en_US
