Abstract

Abstract: The name Addis-01 was given to the finger millet (Eleusine coracana sub spp. coracana) variety with the pedigree of Acc-203544, which was developed by Addis Ababa University in collaboration with Bako Agricultural Research Center between 2011 and 2015. The Addis-01 and the other pipeline finger millet genotypes were evaluated against two standard checks (Gute and Taddesse) across four environments (Arsi Negele, Assosa, Bako, and Gute) in 2012 and 2013 main cropping seasons. Additive main effect and Multiplicative Interaction (AMMI), Genotype and Genotype by Environment interaction (GGE) biplot analysis, and Eberhart and Russell model revealed that Acc. 203544 is stable and high yielding (3.16 ton ha-1) with a yield advantage of 13.7% over the best standard check, Gute (2.78 ton ha-1), and thus was released in 2015.
