An experiment evaluation of advanced barley lines set-II for major barley growing of Tigray, Northern Ethiopia  food barley genotypes 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 genotypes were tested Demhay#1, ERETH07-40#1, ERETH07-61#1, ERETH07-86, Eritera07-49, Eritera 07-62#1, ERITERA07-82, Fetina, ISEBON-0#2, ISEBON-11#2, ISEBON-67 and TselimEkli#1. The trial were conducted three districts of eastern and south eastern zone of  Tigray viz Gulomekeda and Atsbi-wonberat (eastern zone) and Dugua Tebien (south eastern zone). 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.
