Nine released bread wheat cultivars and one promising line were grown and evaluated for characteristic differences under three environments for three seasons. Dhera, Kulumsa and Bekoji represented low, medium and high moisture environments, respectively. Plant, ear and grain characters were the major factors used in describing the varieties. The distinguishing characters were recorded when appropriate plant stages showed full expression of the characters. Several descriptors were used to describe the ten genotypes. The cultivars were distinctively variable for some characters and similar for others. The result of this work will serve as a guideline to wheat seed growers, seed certification agencies and researchers.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
