Wheat productivity particularly in Tigray as compared to the major wheat growing areas of Ethiopia is less. This is due to many of the previously released wheat materials were tested and released in potential areas with high rainfall that does not fit to the real condition of the region and infested by new emerging diseases. Therefore, this activity was implemented to evaluate and select bread wheat genotypes which are with better agronomic performance and resistant to diseases. The trial was conducted at Enderta (Illala on station) districts in 2016 main cropping season. From the overall analysis it is observed  that there is  a sig. difference  among the genotypes tested for all traits except for biomass and seeds per spike. One candidate genotype ETBW 8064 was selected for future regional variety trials.
