Abstract

 

A field experiment was conducted at Bore on station, Ana Sora on farm and Adola sub-site of Guji Zone of Southern Oromia using six improved Chickpea varieties under rain fed condition during 2015/16 cropping season. The study was envisaged to assess the adaptability of six improved chickpea varieties (Arerti, Dalota, Ejere, Habru, Natoli and Teketaye) at three locations in Guji Zone. The field experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications for one year (2015/16) in six rows per plot with 2.4 meters width and three meters length and with spacing of 40 and 10 centimeters between rows and plant, respectively. There result revealed that significant (P < 0.05) difference were observed among the varieties on number of pods plant-1, hundred seed weight and grain yield (kg ha-1) at three locations. The varieties Dalota and Habru were superior yielder overall at three location except of Teketaye which was high yielder at Ana Sora on farm. However, the overall means indicate that Dalota and Habru were superior yielder. Therefore, from this study, Dalota (2411 kg ha-1) and Habru (1822 kg ha-1) were selected and recommended that which had comparably highest yields to be adopted for cultivation in three district of Guji Zone of Southern Oromia.
