  •  Hayel ALWawi    


Ten wheat (Triticum aestivum) genotypes namely G1, G2, G5, G8, G11, G12, G16, G17, G19, G20 were entered from CIMMYT and were screened for desirable characteristics during the growing seasons of 2007/2008 and 2008/2009 respectively. Both trials were conducted in the Department of Agricultural Research (Rawdat AL Faras Station ) under prevailing local Qatar environmental conditions. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed significant differences (P < 0.01) between genotypes for all studied characteristics except the seed yield (P > 0.05). The mean of seed yield was 4375kg / ha for the genotypes while it was 2500 kg / ha for the local Check Doha - 88. Dunnett test showed significant differences (P < 0.05) between the genotypes G2, G5, G8, G20 and Doha - 88 for seed yield. The correlation was positive between t days to heading and days to maturity (r = 0.759*). This study recommends the selection of genotypes with the highest seed yield namely G2 and G5
