Adaptation Study of Improved Haricot Beans (Phaseolus Vulgaris L.)Varieties at Western Oromia, Haro Sabu, Ethiopia

Biru Alemu, Dereje Abera


The experiment was conducted to identify, select and recommend adaptable, high yielding, Insect pest and disease resistant released variety for major Haricot bean producing areas of west and Kellem Wollega zones of West Oromia. Thirteen varieties were evaluated in RCBD with three replication at Haro sabu Agricultural research centre (HARC) on station for one year 2011/12 main cropping season. Analyses of data revealed significant varietal differences (P< 0.05) in grain yield, days to 50% flowering, days to 95% maturity, seed per pod, pod per plant, hundred seed weight, and for plant height. However, no significant varietal differences were observed in stand count. The replication effect was not significant (P < 0.05) for all characters. ICAP-0056, IBADO and GLP-2 were significantly yielder than the rest and recommended as promising variety under the study area.
