Evaluating Adaptability of nationally Released food barley varieties with the objective of improved the production and productivity of food barley there by contribute to the improvement of household food security and farm income of the small holder farmers through the selection of well adapted varieties  .varieties were tested ABAY, BASSO, BIFTU, DAFO, DINHO, DRIBIE, MEZEZO, MISRATCH, MULU, SAE'SAE, SETEGN and TILA .The trial were conducted five districts of eastern and south eastern zone of  Tigray viz Gulomekeda (eastern), Atsbi-wonberat (eastern), Dugua Tebien (south eastern), Enderta (south eastern) Hintalowajera (south eastern).The design was conducted randomized complete block design with three replication. All parameters exhibited significant difference among the varieties. The correlation coefficient of grain yield with biomass yield, harvest index and plant height highly correlated ,moderately with spike length and seeds per spike and weakly correlated with days to heading, days to maturity and 1000 seed weight.


Key words: Environment, genotype, interaction and grain yield
