Diversity among barley germplasm collection in India

Published on

A total of 5337 barley accessions were evaluated for a
number of traits. The accessions included indigenous
germplasm collected from various parts of India; exotics
selected from trials and nurseries received from ICARDA/
CIMMYT, Mexico and ICARDA, Syria; as well as materials
received from different countries over the last four
decades. Out of the total accessions, 2801 were
indigenous and 2536 exotic. Only 290 accessions were
naked type, the rest were hulled. This paper summarizes
results on classification and characterization of these
accessions for various agro-morphological traits,
associations among these traits, and frequency
distribution and donors for days to heading, plant height
and 1000-kernel weight.
