Abstract

Arjo-1 and Bariso are common names for the field pea (Pisum sativum L) varieties with the pedigree names of EH90025-1 and EH90011-1-2 respectively. They were developed and released by Bako Agricultural Research Center for western Ethiopia. Arjo-1 and Bariso were evaluated for six years (1999-2004) at Arjo, Gedo and Shambu stations and had better mean grain yield than the standard check, Tegegnech. Arjo-1 and Bariso were resistant to ascochyta blight and powdery mildew. The result of multi-location trials showed that Arjo-1 and Bariso had above-average grain yield performance across tested locations and years. Yield stability was studied for Arjo-1 and Bariso and they were stable in grain yield performance.
