Studies on Variability of Lentil Genotypes in Southeastern Anatolia of Turkey
Keywords:Turkey, yield, variation, correlation, lentil, Lens culinaris Medik.
Sixty-four lentil genotypes from ICARDA were evaluated at Diyarbakir, Turkey in 2003/2004 season. Eleven characters were studied. Days to maturity ranged from 188 to 196 days, and some genotypes were earlier than the local check, or same. Total 42 genotypes, suitable for mechanical harvest, were taller than 25 cm plant height. Seed yield per plant varied from 0.5 g to 2.366 g. The genotypes for cold tolerance were determined, and the genotypes of 1-3 scale were selected future lentil-breeding programme. Grain yield ranged from 776.8 kg/ha for FLIP 96-47L to 3242.3 kg/ha for FLIP 2004-49L. Grain yield was positively correlated with days to maturity, biological yield per plant, and plant height, number of seeds and pods per plant and seed yield per plant, negatively correlated with days to flowering and number of branches per plant.
