Yugoslavian varieties showed lowest yields as compared with Hungarian and Turkish ones. But Hungarian varieties especially GK-Szöke, Zombor and Öthalom showed good adaptation to the high yielding environments. Turkish variety Gerek-9 performed best in the low yielding environment (lower than 250 kg/da). Another Turkish variety Atay-85 ranked second following GK-Szöke from the point of 350 kg/da. From that point yielding tluıi order was Öthalom, Kate-A1, Gün-91 and Gerek-79. Because Hungarian varieties were well adapted to high yielding environments and out yielded Atay-85, these varieties should he tested under irrigated conditions.
