Material type: materialTypeLabelArticlePublisher: 2013 In: Wheat Information Service (eWIS) no. 115, p. 3 p. Summary: Afghanistan depends on irrigated wheat for 70 to 90% of its wheat harvest. Winter wheat has traditionally been an important contributor to Afghan wheat production; however share of winter wheat varieties in national wheat certified seed production has come down from about 20% to 10% mainly because of lack of suitable resistant varieties. Bamyan 013 was introduced in Afghanistan through winter wheat observation nursery in 2006-07 and was later tested in yield evaluation trials for four years at three winter wheat locations. The variety was found suitable for Afghan conditions as it out-yielded the popular winter wheat checks like Bezostaya, Solh 02 by a margin ranging from 8% to 31% during four years testing and was therefore released for cultivation in August 2013.
