Abstract

Aim: The main aim of this study was to identify the best adapted and high yielding variety(s) at mid-lowland areas of Guji zone during 2020 and 2021 main cropping season.

Materials and Methods: Field experiment was conducted on six improved white common bean varieties in randomized complete block design with three replications. The varieties were evaluated for days to flowering and maturity, plant height, number of branches, number of pods, number of seeds, thousand grain weight and grain yield.

Results: The combined analysis of variance indicated highly significant (P<0.01) differences among varieties for all studied parameters except number of primary branches per plant. The highest mean performance was obtained from varieties Batu, Ado and Awash-1 with 2209 kg ha-1, 1831 kg ha-1 and 1750 kg ha-1, respectively.

Conclusion: It was concluded that Batu and Awash-1 are adaptable white common bean varieties for Guji zones on performance basis. Large  seeded  varieties  were  more preferred due to early maturity  period  and high marketable weight  than  small  seeded  varieties.
